3,400 meeting rooms and 850 hotels worldwide as well as 82 affiliates in Italy

The Space for Meeting 2008 Directory - an indispensable tool for selecting the right establishment at the right time for the right event - is now available to Italian and international organisers of conferences and meetings. The new guide is based on all the experience of Space Hotels' long-time service to travel agents, PCOs and business meeting planners.

The numbers of success
3,400 meeting rooms and 850 hotels worldwide as well as 82 affiliates in Italy: these are the numbers contained in this new publication by the large hotel reservation and marketing group. Space for Meeting 2008 comes in a streamlined format with an elegant white cover depicting a purple crocus - the flower chosen by Space Hotels for this year's directory - and an armchair inviting readers to a simple and easy consultation.

Space Hotels' dedication to MICE
This is what Space Hotels offers the MICE sector: a single contact for making all arrangements clearly and with written confirmation; complete estimates with no surprises; ongoing assistance in organisation before and during the event; full availability of affiliated hotels and their resources in terms of space, time and professionalism assuring the success of every type of business event.

A wide presence from north to south and east to west
Space Hotels has affiliates throughout Italy - from Amalfi to Vicenza including all major business and leisure destinations such as Ancona, Bari, Bologna, Cagliari, Florence, Milan, Naples, Palermo, Rome, Turin and Venice. As well as world-famous tourist attractions such as Ferrara, Herculaneum, Forte dei Marmi, Lecce, Pisa, Ragusa, Rapallo, Riccione, Rimini, Siena, Stresa and Verona.

Practical and efficient symbology
The guide contains a practical symbol legend that indicates all the main characteristics, services, options and facilities of the hotels including: proximity to airports, train stations, heliports and motorways; location of exhibition centres, city centres and parking areas; access for the disabled; and acceptance of pets. With just a glance, event professionals will know if guests can count on access to a beach, a panoramic terrace, a solarium, a gym, a swimming pool or a wellness centre. As Space Hotels affiliates are well known for their cuisine, there is detailed information regarding hotel restaurants offering regional, national and international menus, as well as cafés, lounges, bars and room service. Business travellers will have access to cutting-edge technical systems in the meeting rooms and most hotels offer Wi-Fi connections.

The entire product at a glance
For each guide entry, the meeting room capacities are precisely indicated by a number on the armchair symbol, which is taken from the image on the directory cover. For each hotel, there is a clear diagram illustrating the interior and exterior architecture of the meeting rooms. All meeting spaces are indicated in tables providing their name, location, dimensions, characteristics and capacities including all layout options (U-shaped, amphitheatre, rows, etc.). The Space Hotels website has a dedicated meeting section with detailed information on all its hotels and an estimate request service.
