Rome, the eternal city, has been selected as the venue for the 2018 EMEA Partner Conference.

Rome, Italy’s capital, is a sprawling, cosmopolitan city with nearly 3,000 years of globally influential art, architecture and culture on display. Ancient ruins such as the Forum and the Colosseum evoke the power of the former Roman Empire. Vatican City, headquarters of the Roman Catholic Church, has St. Peter’s Basilica and the Vatican Museums, which house masterpieces such as Michelangelo’s Sistine Chapel frescoes.

Just 10 minutes from the heart of historical Rome and 30 minutes from either of Rome’s two international airports, the Crowne Plaza St Peter’s is in an ideal location to stay and explore all that Rome has to offer. Offering 310 deluxe bedrooms as well as two restaurants and an extensive array of recreational facilities including a large outdoor swimming pool, spa and running concierge!
