MiCo - Milano Congresi
MiCo - Milano Congressi
MiCo – Milano Congressi is one of the largest conference facilities in Europe and worldwide. It’s able to accommodate up to 18,000 people in 70 or so fully appointed conference rooms with permanent control booth. Featuring two plenary rooms, one with seating for 4,000 and the other for 2,000 and an Auditorium that seats 1,500, it is the ideal venue for large-scale performances and for international conferences requiring a large number of rooms. The exhibition halls offer 54,000 sq.m of exhibition space and can also be set up as extra plenary rooms accommodating more than 5,000 people.
The conference rooms feature the full range of technologies: video projector, sound system, translator booths, fixed video cameras, closed circuit TV, Wi-Fi internet access and optical fiber cables. Showcasing a strong track record of Corporate and Associative international events, MiCo team collaborates with an established network of qualified suppliers and stakeholders at national and regional levels.
With regard to air-conditioning (heating/cooling), since 2014 a function for the resetting and optimization of the systems has been in operation so as to achieve the highest possible level of efficiency and effectiveness, with evident and significant energy saving.
In the rooms, halls and common areas a good part of the replacement has been completed of the traditional fixtures with discharge, metal iodides, fluorescent and halogen, in favor of new-generation Led lamps featuring DALI technology. This transformation makes it possible to cut energy consumption by about 60% and to reduce the manpower required for maintenance as the life of the apparatus is prolonged. The providers of services are actively involved in the operation (service staff, electricians, stage hands, etc.), who attend to the setting up of MiCo spaces on behalf of customers. Already today the main service partner uses spectacular lighting systems with Led technology. The process of techno-lighting updating will see further rapid acceleration which will lead to considerable results with the introduction of automation systems based on demotics (foreseen by the early months of 2017) that will allow the management of the lights in an intelligent manner, with further benefits in terms of consumption and the cost of staff.
About 80% of the indoor premises of MiCo are floored with a high-tech resin that a few hours after installation guarantees a level of volatile organic compounds (VOC) of less than 1%. Moreover, the employment of resin with low solvent content ensures long-lasting performance and possible reuse as a base for staging new events. The elimination of the cost of disposal is obvious.
The spacious new area put at the disposal of the citizenry for events, shows, start-ups, etc. on MiCo premises; operative beginning from September 2016, it is realized with recycled materials previously used in pavilions for the staging of meetings and congresses, and otherwise bound for disposal. The lighting system is with Led lights with DALI digital control.
Against Food Waste – Project Siticibo (Food Bank)
As part of its commitment to social work, MiCo has been engaged since May 2011 – together with Compass Group, the world leader company that attends to the banqueting for Portello meetings – in the redistribution free of charge of unconsumed meals to charitable association present in the territory.
