From 2018 to 2020 Florence will host four new congresses won thanks to the bidding activity made by Firenze Convention and Visitors Bureau and its members, in particular thanks to the strong teamwork with Firenze Fiera Congress and Exhibition Centre.
First on the list, the Regional meeting of the International Society for Cellular Therapy that will be held in the venues managed by Firenze Fiera Congress and Exhibition Centre in 2018 with 300 delegates coming from all over Europe.
Two further congresses have been confirmed in 2019: the International Congress on Controversies in Rheumatology Autoimmunity (CORA) – hosted in Florence for the 2nd time after its first edition of 2011 and organized by Kenes, one of the most important PCOs in the world – and the National Congress of LIONS who chose the Teatro Verdi of Florence to host their 2.000 delegates.
In September 2020, the congress citadel of Firenze Fiera will be hosting the IEEE Radar Conference. FCVB gave its support for this congress to find an institutional venue for the gala dinner for free thanks to its partnership with Florence Municipality.
