Ravenna has recently turned into the top destination of the socalled Riviera Romagnola, that is one of the most popular international tourist destinations. Consequently, the exhibition industry and especially cultural events have become an important income in the economy of the city. Ravenna is equipped with public and private facilities suitable for the organization of congresses, conventions and other events attracting a large turnout. The variety of accommodation possibilities and catering facilities are a plus that make of Ravenna the ideal destination for congress tourism.
Every year Ravenna organizes international fair trades such as Gifra - Convegno di Numismatica e filatelia (in September); GiovinBacco - Sangiovese in festa (in November); the Fiera dell’Elettronica, Informatica e del Radiantismo (in September); Ravenna Sposi (in November); Natale Insieme (in December) and OMC - Offshore Mediterranean Conference (biennial event taking place in March).
