Venice Architecture Biennale


As part of the Architecture Biennale in Venice, which takes place regularly every two years, we invite architects and people interested in architecture to our Meetingpoint on the Grand Canal during the opening week – an event that has long since become an institution. In the majestic ambience of the Palazzo Contarini Polignac, you can look forward to a varied supporting programme as well as our legendary Welcome Party, which is the kick-off meeting of the event. Look forward to an inspiring exchange and joint networking in the middle of Venice.

Established event during the opening week of the Architecture Biennale

Since 2012, the Communication Initiative has initiated a meeting point on the occasion of the Architecture Biennale in Venice.

During the opening week of the Biennale, which takes place every two years in the Giardini, the Arsenale and at countless locations within the city, the gates of a palazzo directly on the Grand Canal open to offer a meeting place for architects for several days.

Comprehensive program and services for architects

Every day from 9:00-22:00 we offer a varied program, including food and drinks. Already in the run-up we invite to lectures, we celebrate parties and rest, enjoy and network in deckchairs in the garden or on the jetty. A water cab shuttle that runs several times a day between the Biennale grounds and the Palazzo provides a certain grandeur during the trips.

Legendary welcome party and inspiring togetherness

The Meetingpoint became an institution from the very first second. The Welcome Party, with which the Meetingpoint opens, is legendary, the program diverse, the location impressive and the joint networking inspiring.
