Palariccione is a shining and majestic glass and steel congress center located in the city centre of Riccione. Four levels, plus a partly-covered panoramic terrace suspended between the Sky and the Sea: “Riccione City Eye”, a space dedicated to conviviality and amazement, that adds a touch of Romagna warmth to the traditionally serious image of Convention Centres.
Opened in 2008 and designed by architects Alessandro Anselmi, Carlo and Piero Gandolfi, and Studio Passarelli, Palariccione is an urban convention centre, located in the heart of Riccione, where everything is within walking distance: hotels, restaurants, boutiques, parks, cycle lanes, and the spectacular boardwalk.
Being so close to Riccione’s city centre, accommodating guests in hotels becomes really easy. There are 45 hotels, including 18 4 or 5-star hotels, within 500 m, offering a total of 800 rooms. And within 1 km, 136 hotels, including 34 4 or 5-star hotels, with a total of 1600 rooms.

On the ground floor, Palariccione hosts a multiplex cinema and a shopping area with elegant and trendy boutiques.
On Level 1, the conference reception hall, with registration desks, coatroom, café, relax area.
On Level 3, Concordia Plenary Room: 1800m² of empty space that can quickly turn into a furnished 1400-seats auditorium thanks to an innovative retractable seating system (patented by Poltrona Frau).

– Polissena Room, with a capacity of 608 people;

Dear meeting planner...

Dear Planner,

if our beautiful venue has captured your interest, and if you’re a bit intrigued by our enthusiasm, we would be extremely glad to host your events.
As you’ve probably noticed, we are able to host any kind of event, from corporate meetings to weddings, from parties to team building activities, to large conventions. Why? Because Palariccione is a very special convention center — it’s beautiful, bright and modern. Moreover, unlike other venues, that are often located in the middle of nowhere or in the suburbs, Palariccione is right in the heart of Riccione and is therefore close to everything you could possibly need and ask for: hotels, shops, tourist attractions, and, obviously, the beach. This is what makes us different, and perhaps unique.

Another pride of ours is the “human element”: all our staff are passionate, receptive and professional, eager to make (and help you make) a good impression on your guests, and honor Emilia Romagna’s great hospitality tradition.

If you’d like to pay us a visit and inspect our facility yourself, feel free to contact me: you’ll be welcomed with open arms.
Laura Colonna - Palariccione
