The 27th World Canals Conference is to be held in Italy for the first time, and will be based in one of the ‘birthplaces’ of European canals: Milan, from Monday 1st to Thursday 4th September 2014. The public agency for development of Milan’s canals, Navigli Lombardi, is putting together a conference that will be both informative and spectacular. Aware of the importance of the event, some of the regular institutional partners of Navigli Lombardi have agreed to provide specific services to contribute to its success. These include the Milan Chamber of Commerce, the Milan Public Transport authority ATM, the Fondazione Fiera, and the Italian Pavilion at Expo 2015 in Milan. >> to the Conference web site.
