Hotels in Milan, Italy Get Down to Business at the MICE & More Network Events

The Travel Industry's Best and Brightest Convene at the Milan Marriott Hotel

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.

About the Milan Marriott Hotel
The Milan Marriott Hotel embodies the sort of elegance and service befitting a hotel located within one of the world's foremost fashion capitals. Its city-center location means the airport is as close as the city's top museums, shops and restaurants. But once within its traditional lobby, guests find themselves transported in another way. 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. And 22 meeting rooms are flexible enough to welcome groups both large and small, while a fitness center outfitted with cardiovascular equipment and free weights provides an exciting way to work off the pasta and tiramisu. Milan may be known for fashion, but the Milan Marriott Hotel offers function as well.

In IT, we sometimes coin terms for things before we know exactly what they are and how they’ll be used. The resulting terms may capture a common set of aspirations and goals – as “cloud” did broadly for on-demand, self-service, and flexible computing. But such a term can also lump together diverse and even competing practices, technologies, and priorities to the point where important distinctions are glossed over and lost.
As organizations shift towards IT-as-a-service models, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and now cloud environments grows with it. Commvault can ensure protection, access and E-Discovery of your data – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud, or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise.

"Cloud computing is certainly changing how people consume storage, how they use it, and what they use it for. It's also making people rethink how they architect their environment," stated Brad Winett, Senior Technologist for DDN Storage, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
When shopping for a new data processing platform for IoT solutions, many development teams want to be able to test-drive options before making a choice. Yet when evaluating an IoT solution, it’s simply not feasible to do so at scale with physical devices. Building a sensor simulator is the next best choice; however, generating a realistic simulation at very high TPS with ease of configurability is a formidable challenge. When dealing with multiple application or transport protocols, you would be...
Detecting internal user threats in the Big Data eco-system is challenging and cumbersome. Many organizations monitor internal usage of the Big Data eco-system using a set of alerts. This is not a scalable process given the increase in the number of alerts with the accelerating growth in data volume and user base. Organizations are increasingly leveraging machine learning to monitor only those data elements that are sensitive and critical, autonomously establish monitoring policies, and to detect...
FinTechs use the cloud to operate at the speed and scale of digital financial activity, but are often hindered by the complexity of managing security and compliance in the cloud. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, Sesh Murthy, co-founder and CTO of Cloud Raxak, showed how proactive and automated cloud security enables FinTechs to leverage the cloud to achieve their business goals. Through business-driven cloud security, FinTechs can speed time-to-market, diminish risk and costs, maintain continu...
CIOs and those charged with running IT Operations are challenged to deliver secure, audited, and reliable compute environments for the applications and data for the business. Behind the scenes these tasks are often accomplished by following onerous time-consuming processes and often the management of these environments and processes will be outsourced to multiple IT service providers. In addition, the division of work is often siloed into traditional "towers" that are not well integrated for cro...

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in t...

For organizations that have amassed large sums of software complexity, taking a microservices approach is the first step toward DevOps and continuous improvement / development. Integrating system-level analysis with microservices makes it easier to change and add functionality to applications at any time without the increase of risk. Before you start big transformation projects or a cloud migration, make sure these changes won’t take down your entire organization.
The Jevons Paradox suggests that when technological advances increase efficiency of a resource, it results in an overall increase in consumption. Writing on the increased use of coal as a result of technological improvements, 19th-century economist William Stanley Jevons found that these improvements led to the development of new ways to utilize coal. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Mark Thiele, Chief Strategy Officer for Apcera, compared the Jevons Paradox to modern-day enterprise IT, examin...
