With the Dpcm of August 7, congresses and events are back to the rescue from the beginning of September. The sector in Italy is very popular, with more than 550,000 workers in the sector, who following the Covid19 emergency is going through a major crisis: between 60% and 80% of events and congresses have been canceled due to the lockdown.
According to the research "The impact of Covid-19 on the Italian meeting industry: the perspective of event and congress venues”, created by the High School of Economics and International Relations of the Catholic University of the Sacred Heart (Aseri) in collaboration with Federcongressi&eventi, the lockdown in the sector due to the pandemic has, as you might expect, caused the cancellation of a very large number of events and congresses high. According to one estimate, around 215,000 events have been cancelled.
The sector has been closed for 6 months and, hoping the cases of contagion from Covid19, can finally regain oxygen. Organization of events and congresses generates an income of almost 65 billion euros, with a direct impact on GDP of more than 36 billion euros annually (Italy ranks sixth in the world for economic impact generated by the events and congresses sector) and which employs almost 570 thousand workers.
The Organization of events and congresses it is a sector that brings tourism to Italy, ensures hotel occupancy even in the low season (and of hotels in art cities currently in crisis), promotes Italy's image abroad and which involves an entire supply chain ( hotels, conference centres, organizing agencies, transport companies, catering and technical service companies).
