IN THE HEART OF MILAN’S BUSINESS DISTRICT
NH Milano Congress Centre is located in Assago, Milan business district just 15 minutes away from the city center and nearby the vibrant Navigli area.
Milan is the second largest city in Italy and has made a successful transition to a post-industrial city, generating wealth through services, trade fairs, creative industries, technology and as a financial centre. It also boasts a cultural heritage that dates back to the Roman empire including the Duomo Cathedral and Castello Sforzesco. Milan is also home to Leonardo da Vinci’s The Last Supper which has been designated a UNESCO World Heritage Site.
More than any other Italian city, Milan has placed culture and creativity at the heart of its social and economic development, building on its creative and cultural industries. Numerous cultural and creative hubs have spread throughout the city.
It is the home of many start-ups, offering an experimental space for organisations in the fields of health, sustainability and social innovation. It also has 11 universities and academies, as well as established media companies and is home to key players in the creative economy, especially fashion and design.
Overall, nearly 15,000 creative firms and 189,000 creative workers are based in the city. Its cultural offer includes 90 museums, among them the recently opened Mudec-Museum of Cultures and exhibition spaces such as Fondazione Prada, over 190 art galleries, 107 cinema screens, nearly 60 theatres and concert halls, including Teatro alla Scala and many internationally recognised festivals.
