Micromachine Summit 2007



As you know, Venice is one of the most popular locations in the world, all year long. In particular, Spring is high season for Venice. For this reason our Organizing Committee already reserved blocks of rooms in three different (but all 4-star) hotels. Price room depends on location.

These are the options:
