as true INSIDER 

Your journey is meticulously crafted
Forget the hurried footsteps and chaotic crowds in the heat. The schedule, refined over years, seamlessly blends lectures, artist meetings, and museum visits with time for leisurely lunches, walks, and even a bit of shopping.
Dont just visit the exhibitions
Your creative spirit soars at the Biennale. Engage in deep conversations with curators, artists, and organizers. Delve into the world of top galleries like Victoria Miro and cozy Venetian art spaces featuring special Biennale projects. Enjoy private tours at the main venues of the Arsenale and Giardini and the Peggy Guggenheim Collection.
Experience the best of creative Venice
Go to the best spots in town - dine where gondoliers choose, with tables reserved in advance to skip the queues. Come to the favorite restaurant of Zaha Hadid architects or a bar designed by Philippe Starck. We’ll guide you through the best dishes on each menu. The experience culminates with a legendary boat ride across the Grand Canal.
Share ideas and foster collaborations with governments, foundations, and curators or simply enjoy the party and conversation. With 80+ countries presenting in 2024, there is no other place in the world to get such a comprehensive overview of the art ecosystem and its ways. We discuss case studies, PR failures, budgets, and structure. You collect a list of contacts, from transportation to venues, in case you ever want to organize a project in Venice.
