HNH Hospitality aims at MICE with MPI Italy: meeting in Verona for Italian planners

MPI Italy joins HNH Hospitality for an AperiNetwork in Verona to present the new Hotel Indigo Verona – Grand Hotel Des Arts to planners and bring together the Board of the Association’s Italian chapter for 2020-2021 planning.    

The MPI Italy Board held a retreat in Verona last weekend dedicated to the 2020-2021 planning of activities for the Association’s Italian chapter aimed at meeting industry members.

The venue was our Hotel Indigo Verona – Grand Hotel Des Arts, which reopened 19 June after the restyling and rebranding of the historic Grand Hotel Des Arts, in a renewed version and under the brand Hotel Indigo®, a brand of boutique hotels in the IHG InterContinental Hotels Group.

On this occasion, an AperiNetwork was organized on the evening of 25 September to present the HNH Hospitality Group’s offer to the meeting industry with over 70 operators from the sector present. “It was a pleasure to host this great event at our hotel, organized in complete safety and in collaboration with MPI Italy. A meeting that finally let us get together in person with the main business travel and MICE operators in Verona, northern Italy, as well as with many other companies in and around Verona. A sign that we can and must start holding events again by ensuring the safety of guests.” – commented Luca Boccato, CEO of HNH Hospitality, and concluded – “Despite the difficult moment in our sector, giving this prestigious structure back to the city and hosting such an important event confirms HNH Hospitality’s choice in the Group’s development and strategy regarding the meeting industry, and allows us to look toward the future with confidence”.

“We are happy about this synergy with HNH Hospitality and the 25 September event was further confirmation of the possibility of organizing events in full compliance with the safety protocols, above all alongside forward-thinking professionals and companies.” – said Maddalena Milone, President of MPI Italy – “Verona has brought together the Board of MPI Italy and there are numerous and ambitious activities inserted in the 2020-2021 planning for our members. Starting from the imminent webinars for professional refresher courses to the numerous meetings from Milan to Cagliari to reunite the national meeting industry.”
