THE POST CONGRESS EVENINGS
not just business

The conference centre in the Parma hills combines a winning formula, made up of work and pleasure, wellness and business, for successful events. For this reason we've created a wide range of proposals for you, including gala dinners, entertainment, music and cabaret shows, typical restaurants and establishments to cater for every taste, together with excursions to discover the beauty of the territory.
Our staff can plan and coordinate the program for any event in the tiniest details, from the transportation to the bookings. All our resources are at your disposal to offer you the best in entertainment, and, if requested, to create personalised solutions for you.
Dinner at the castle
An ancient castle, surrounded by the verdant Salsomaggiore woods, opens its doors and invites you to enjoy an unforgettable evening.
The park, the elegant Renaissance courtyard, the frescoed hall with its vast landscapes inspired by the four seasons, welcome the guests and conjures up the pomp of the Pallavicino and Farnese families. Our chefs from the Delle Calle restaurant take care of the banqueting service, offering tasty and appetizing dishes which are able to conquer event the most discerning palate. The refined presentation of the dishes and the elegant table dressings complete the service. The castle is the perfect backdrop to host groups of more than 80 guests in grand style.
Castello del Sale
Cabarets and shows
The curtain rises on entertainment. The hotel staff can organise evenings of laughter and entertainment with comedians, magicians, jugglers and clowns who will present their best acts. Each show abounds in hilarious gags, conjuring tricks and lots of irony, so as to present moments of sheer light-heartedness. Even the right entertainment, chosen on the basis of the guests' taste, can help the successful outcome of a meeting or convention, and can really make the difference. For this reason, we offer a complete and personalised service, so as to totally satisfy your requirements.
Jazz, pop, international or Italian. Music is in its element amongst the Salsomaggiore hills, especially if it enlivens a post conference evening. Enticing and fun, a concert always takes hold and entertains the most demanding audience. If requested, our staff can arrange a show and will be pleased to advise you regarding the best solutions for your needs.
Emilia Romagna is a region of gourmets and bon vivants.
Even Salsomaggiore and Parma are no exceptions and offer lots of possibilities to enjoy oneself. One starts at the table: with tens of restaurants and taverns where one can sample the local dishes, such as salamis, Parmigiano cheese and cappelletti (a type of ravioli).
After dinner one can choose from a wide range of clubs with live music, discos and naturally the theatre, the temple of opera, dance and drama.
The chance to enjoy evenings such as these is simple: our staff will help you choose the best program. We love taking care of our guests and look after every detail, from the transportation, to collecting information, to the actual booking.
Discovering Parma and its surroundings
Another good reason to choose our conference centre is because it's located in a territory with a rich past, of which its monuments are testimony. Even a meeting, a convention or a work session can offer the occasion to discover new places. Our staff can help you decide on the best itinerary to discover Parma, a splendid city with a wonderful Medieval square, embellished by the works of famous artists such as Correggio and Parmigianino.
Even the province, dotted with noble forts and castles, from the banks of the Po river up to the foot of the Apennines, merits a visit, as well as the Via Francigena, the old pilgrim route, still marked by ancient parishes even today.
