Venice, the capital of Veneto, is known as the city of canals for a reason. And it takes full advantage of this moniker as tourism is the key contributor to the city’s thriving economy.
Why exhibit there?
In the past, Venice achieved success thanks to its great nautical force due to its strategic position at the head of the Adriatic sea. Today however, the current economy of Venice is based mainly on tourism and cultural and artistic events such as the Venetian Carnival and numerous film festivals.
The best way to get between Marco Polo Airport and Venice city centre is by aerobus, however, the more tourist route is via the water bus.

Key tourist hotspots
One of the best ways to explore Venice is to just simply wander for hours. Get lost in the enchanting little streets and passageways, strolling beside the canals, and finding its secret corners.
- Venice's best-known church, and one of the most easily recognized in the world, is St. Mark's Basilica (Basilica di San Marco), originally the Doge's private chapel.
- The vast expanse of Venice's largest square, St. Mark’s Square (Piazza San Marco) is the place everybody gathers.
- La Zucca‘s name means ‘pumpkin’ in Italian, and of course that is the main ingredient for many of their dishes.
- Riviera’s. Enjoy one of their delicious cocktails and appetizing pasta dishes (they serve gnocchi, ravioli, pappardelle, spaghetti).
- Local currency is Euro.
- Language is Italian.
- Visa - if you’re from within the EU you don’t need one, outwith the EU you’ll have to check the list.
- Plug sockets are the two prong European type.
- There are no real cultural sensitivities so to speak, but advice for conducting business meetings:
- Meetings begin punctually late: they start late and they finish late.
- Italians tend to ”multitask”, as they like to do many things at once, shifting their priorities as new demands arise but being unruffled by interruptions.
