11th International Congress on Aerobiology
3 - 7 September 2018, Parma, Italy
The Congress Centre of the Chamber of Commerce of Parma (the Institution was inaugurated about 40 years ago) was meant to meet some specific requirements that since a long time were sensed from social and economic categories of the local territory. Therefore, in the Sixties, the public administrators decided to include in the building project of the new site of the Institution a modern and equipped congress centre.
The construction of the building ended in 1970: it is beautiful and imposing, and is located in the city centre (Via Verdi), at walking distance from the railway station, the other public Institutions, the tourist and cultural attractions, the hosting structures. Furthermore, during the recent period, the Congress Centre has been modernized and conformed to the new provisions on the matter of the safety in the buildings of public access.
The Congress Centre is composed by several rooms: the main hall is Aurea Parma Hall, on the first floor of the building. The hall is equipped with a simultaneous translation system, video-projection, video recording, amplification and video-conference system; closed circuit TV. The capacity of Aurea Parma Hall can be increased up to 300 seats, connecting the attached module rooms Farnese and Stendhal.
Other rooms of different sizes are available on the same level and on other floors of the venue: Du Tillot room of 100 seats (audio-video connected with Aurea Parma Hall, in case) with a dedicated foyer available for secretariat desk or catering service.
Sala Stampa, a meeting room on the first floor, has a capacity of 20 seats and it is ideal as secretariat office and slide centre.
Facing the main hall there is a large Foyer, available for hospitality desk, exhibition area, catering service; the ex Borsa Merci hall on the ground floor is a multifunctional and prestigious area, for different possible layout solutions.
