Venue Consulting Service

The perfect location in Italy? You can find it at Ediman!

The Venue Consulting Service, powered by Ediman – publisher of this website and master of communication in the meeting industry since 1973 - is a free and personalized consultation service for Companies looking to find the best locations for their events, conventions, incentive trips and receive quotes from them.

How the venue consulting service works

Send a brief description of your event to our Venue Consulting Manager Eleonora Papaleo (contact details at the bottom) and your request will be immediately taken care of by a professional venue specialist who will:

#1 Provide a consultation to choose from the best locations available according to the characteristics of your event (standards and services requested, event budget), sharing the results of the research with you.

#2 Prepare the RFP (request for proposal) with a brief of your event to ask for quotes from the locations.

#3 Send the RFP directly to the event managers of the locations agreed upon with you.

#4 Gather all quotes and send them to you in a standard format for an easy comparison, with the best prices that the locations can offer, within just 48 hours of receiving your brief.

#5 Assist you with possible negotiations or with the planning of the site inspection, if needed.

#6 Put you in direct contact with the chosen location to finalise the offer.

Free of charge

As all Ediman products and services, the Venue Consulting Service is provided completely free of charge to the commissioning Company and those within it who are delegated to organizing the event.


Sales meeting, product launch, gala dinner, canvass, kick off… every event has its own specifics and locations best suited to host them. We have an in-depth knowledge of over 3000 venues in Italy and the customized selection of the suggested venues is one of the strengths of the service.


The service guarantees all the quotes from all most suitable locations within 48 hours of your brief, without you having to follow up with the location providers. Keeping the deadlines met will be our concern.


The convenience of having one person of reference to liaise with many locations, and provide you with all the quotes in a standard format and a table of costs to easily compare the offers, it is what event organisers have always wanted to have but never dared to ask.

The best conditions

The Venue Consulting Service provides you with the best conditions possible as for prices and policy, without applying any mark up.


Our service has already fully satisfied many Companies such as Kawasaki, Roadhouse, Puma, MIP Politecnico di Milano Graduate School of Business. Both Italian and overseas, in different market sectors.
