MiCo Milano Convention Centre is proud to announce being awarded as a Silver Healthy Venue
MiCo Milano Convention Centre enthusiastically joined the invitation of the World Obesity Federation to fight obesity and the incorrect lifestyles and eating habits, obtaining, thanks to the realization of specific areas of intervention, the Healthy Venue Bronze level certification. With this prestigious award, MiCo is one of the most advanced conference centres in the world as a venue for events.
The Healthy Venue accreditation involves event planners, event participants but also MiCo employees, external organizers, suppliers and occasional guests.
As a Silver Healthy Venue MiCo Milano Convention Centre is committed to providing healthy food options across all our menus, providing water around the menu, helping event planners to design meeting to promote less sedentary behavior, supporting event planner to incorporate physical activity into their program and promoting active travel to and from the venue.
Changes have been made to the menu, with healthier options included in gala dinner menus, lunches, pocked lunch as so on. Delegates will be able to recognize healthier dishes by specific healthy signs placed in buffet lines and in the caterer brochure. Moreover, delegates and event planners can enjoy a 180 square meter Wellness Lounge on the second floor of MiCo South Wing. This area offers space dedicated to exercises, small tools and yoga mattresses and changing rooms with showers. Across the venue, a dedicated healthy signage has been implemented to gently remind to the users to maintain healthy habits during their stay in the venue, from using the stairs instead of the elevator to drink water to rehydrate and concentrate during the meeting.
