Riva del Garda Fierecongressi is the manager of the exhibition and conference centre in the Trentino region.
The company's mission is “to sustain and promote the economy of the area by means of the development of the exhibition and conference business,” and in particular in the North Garda area, through the organisation, both direct and by means of third parties, of conference and exhibition events within the Exhibition Centre and Conference Centre premises.
The professional experience of Riva del Garda Fierecongressi began in 1972 when the local tourist authority had the Congress Centre built to host conference events, which was immediately followed by the first edition of Expo Riva Schuh, the international footwear exhibition, immediately followed by Expo Riva Hotel, towards the end of the seventies. Later on, in 1988, Palacongressi Ltd. was founded (which went public in 2002) and led to the construction of the Exhibition area, situated just a few kilometres from the centre in the industrial area.
In 2005 the company's name changed to Riva del Garda Fierecongressi, which more appropriately reflected both aspects of the business: the execution of exhibitions and the organisation of conference events, which are each supported by the hospitality services provided by the incoming agency – Rivatour.
