Florence is renowned worldwide for its art, culture, and beauty, as well as for being the birthplace of banking, architecture, and the Renaissance. A major tourist destination, the city is able to accommodate visitors numbering many times more than its residents, making it an excellent site for conferences.
Since ATCE 2010 will be a great opportunity for our exhibitors and attendees to enjoy all that Florence offers, we will be arranging on-site and post-show tours of the city.
