Location of the conference: Venice - Italy
Venice is a city in northeastern Italy, the capital of the Veneto region and probably the most famous city in Italy.
It is situated on a group of 118 small islands that are separated by canals and linked by over 400 bridges. The islands are located in the shallow Venetian Lagoon. The population of the historical city of Venice is around 55,000 people (Source: Wikipedia).
The city of Venice itself is very picturesque, but during the famous carnival, everything becomes even more interesting. A short impression of the city of Venice during the carnival season can be found in this video made by two Slovenian bloggers from https://eatseetravel.net/.
