MILAN, ITALY -- (Marketwired) -- 05/21/14 -- Travel is exciting for most people, including, it turns out, those who work in the industry. While the rest of us might focus on an exotic destination or a state-of-the-art conference space, travel professionals focus on just one big trip: The MICE & More network Events held on May 27, 2014 at the Milan Marriott Hotel.
Some 50 exhibitors and 200 companies are expected to attend the symposium, including events managers, travel managers, directors of marketing and communication and personal assistants from a number of leading Italian businesses.
As they arrive at their designated meeting room in Milan, delegates will find a number of exciting exhibits and workshops featuring the best packages, offers and destinations within the MICE world. A well-being corner, buffet and even an exciting surprise scheduled for the end of the conference add an element of fun to the day's workshops. One of the most important exhibits -- the Milan Marriott booth -- will be manned by Sales Executive Gabriella Di Ubaldo and Senior Sales Manager Danilo Cinci, who will personally welcome guests to the MICE & More Events' sponsor and host property.
As one of the most event-friendly hotels near the Milan Airport, the Milan Marriott is unmatched when it comes to hosting conferences like this one. Its 22 meeting rooms afford 24,757 square feet of flexible space that can be as elegant or functional as necessary. On-site, professional event managers ensure a seamless meeting experience, and mouthwatering catering makes breaks something everyone can look forward to.
Such gracious hospitality in the meeting room sets the tone for what guests will find elsewhere on property. In addition to sumptuous comfort within the 321 guest rooms and suites, the hotel gives visitors a tantalizing taste of restaurants in Milan, Italy, thanks to its La Brasserie de Milan Restaurant (featuring an open-view kitchen and regional specialties) and Bar 66. So much good cooking ensures guests will have plenty of energy to tour the bevy of nearby attractions. As one of the best Milan hotels near the Duomo, this property puts visitors within steps of exclusive shops and boutiques, da Vinci's "The Last Supper" at Cenacolo Vinciano and more. It's no wonder, then, that those who know the business-travel industry better than anyone else would choose this destination for its conference.

Richly appointed guest rooms feature marble bathrooms, LCD televisions, spacious work areas and luxurious Revive bedding. Restaurants embrace the Italian love of cooking with Mediterranean options at both La Brasserie de Milan Restaurant and Bar 66.

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes.
