Our company

Consulting and Management of highly complex International and Multicultural Systems with Accommodation for Global, Cultural and Sporting Events.

We are a young company with strong expertise in hospitality and management of complex international environments working inside Global Events. Our headquarters are in Italy and the USA. Village is an important point of reference for Global Cultural and Sporting Events, aiming to develop the relationship between the event concept, the participants and the visitors.

Most of us planned and experienced the unforgettable adventure of Expo Milano 2015 managing Expo Village, where 5,000 delegates coming from 130 countries lived together for 10 months.

We supported the planning and some direct management of the Event Accommodation for the 24th General Conference of International Council of Museums in 2016. We are now consulting with the Expo Village for Expo Astana 2017, Expo Dubai 2020 and other important Sporting Events.

Our history has given us the energy and the passion to build the future and to face new challenges. We consider ourselves the ideal partner for coordinating, with success, the hospitality, the services and the temporary accommodation for International Sport and Not-Sport Events.

Business as a creative community: this idea leads us during the selection and training of our collaborators as well as in our daily work with clients. Our staff is truly international and we count on the collaboration of our wide group of specialists from all over the world, always ready to work with our team with passion, strength and resolution.

Thanks to our strong network and deep understanding of the university world, we are easily able to find new people with different technical, cultural and linguistic competences.
