Venezia Unica Convention Bureau

Discover the inimitable range of possibilities that Venice offers to those who organise events (new multifuncional venues, historical venues, activities, traditional events such as the Carnival...)

Venezia Unica by Vela is a City Council company set up to offer the “Venice System” to conference organizers. We can present to you venues for prestigious, modular and multifunctional events, in particular the congress centre of the Palazzo del Cinema and the Casino on the Lido of Venice, or prestigious historical sites such as the Palazzo Ducale or the Arsenal. Venice allows the use of public spaces, including the waterfront, of the city with the possibility of commercial communication to millions of tourists, including obtaining authorisations and permits.

Proposals for customised company events, including to coincide with the traditional events we organise (Carnival, Festa del Redentore, Historic Regata) offering unrepeatable opportunities for hospitality,  to organise tailor made motivational events and Incentive Travel.
Post Congress: public transport to and from Venice; tickets for museums, events and the city’s leading cultural institutions; Venezia Unica and Event Card.


Destination Venezia

Venice is unique, with its infinite charm and enchanting landscapes, one of the world capitals of culture, art and entertainment.

Event venues

Signature activities

  • Official Dinner Show Carnevale

    The Venice Carnival Dinner Shows are staged on stage at Ca' Vendramin Calergi, one of Venice's most beautiful 16th-century palaces with an extraordinary view of the Grand Canal. It gives seductive performances and sumptuous gowns every year, giving guests a taste of the vices and virtues of eighteenth-century libertine Venice thanks to an artistic cast of the highest caliber. Exclusive dinners take place among courtesans and acrobats, burlesque numbers, singers and performance actors.

  • Regata storica

    The Regata Storica takes place every year on the first Sunday in September. It is one of the most spectacular, picturesque and engaging moments of city life, followed especially by the Venetians who gather along the banks of the Grand Canal.
