A year of work to turn Naples into a coveted conference location.
It has been a year since the foundation of Convention Bureau Naples. Director Giovanna Lucherini talks about the remarkable accomplishments that have been achieved until now, such as the 2019 World Tunnelling Congress in Naples, the contribution for Pietrarsa Tourism Conference and the event held for the 25th anniversary of MPI Italia Chapter (Meeting Professionals International).
“We have established and strengthened many collaborations like, for example, the one with Mostra d’Oltremare and Città della Scienza” – CBN Director Giovanna Lucherini says – “These are prestigious and efficient venues. This is exactly what Naples needs to become a competitive player in the meeting industry”.
Other agreements have been signed with Fondazione il Cartastorie of Fondazione Banco di Napoli and Catacombs of Naples.
Il Cartastorie President Daniele Marrama declared himself satisfied with the partnership with Convention Bureau Naples “because it is an essential part of our foundation’s mission to support the development of the area. In addition, the historical archive of our bank, the largest in the world, is a unique location that can enrich the offer of CBN”.
La Paranza President Giovanni Maraviglia, who runs the catacombs, is on the same wavelength: “The beauty of Sanità district is a real opportunity for us. Naples must be not only a tourist destination, but also a conference location. Our partnership with Convention Bureau is moving in this direction”.
In addition to these prestigious venues, McArthurGlen La Reggia Designer Outlet – a shopping center very popular among tourists – is also part of CBN.
CNB President Armando Brunini has no doubt: “The organization of important events and conferences is essential to generate profit and create wealth for the entire year. It allows us to reinforce our position during the tourist season and increase it in the “weakest” months, like November, January or February”.
By putting together the most important entrepreneurial activities of the city, CBN continues promoting Naples as a reliable and efficient conference location for international events.
Convention Bureau Napoli (CBN) was founded by private partners in November 2015 as a network of companies operating in the Naples meeting industry. Its main goal is to promote Naples as a meeting location and to support planners that organize events in the city.
