I know this is way in advance, but I just booked my September, 2013 trip to Italy today, and I'm dreaming about it. After Venice, I was thinking about spending 4 days in Bologna. I checked the trade fair schedule and noticed there was a trade fair scheduled for Fri., Sept. 7 through Tues., Sept. 10 - it's the 25th SANA International Exhibition of Organic and Natural Products. I've read on this forum that hotels are more expensive during trade shows. So if I were to plan to arrive in Bologna on Wed., Sept. 11, are hotel rates likely to have gone back down to their normal rates? Or do the rates tend to stay high for a couple of days after the fairs are over? Thanks for your help!
