You can use the Link throw and link catch event.

Dear Luis,

I think the question is very straightforward. Pedro wants to link diagrams and does not want to use sub-process because it does not allow lanes. So please say either no it is not possible or give the right answer. The link you have given has nothing to do with the question. We are all very busy people and have problems to solve in our work environments and don't need answers which are off track. Regards.

Dear Khalil,

What Luis said is that it´s possible using interaction between pools. That means that you can use different type of events to do a collaboration diagram.

More than one pool in a diagram represents interaction between separated business entities or performers.

Many business processes require interaction between each other to be correctly performed and accomplished. In BPMN these interactions are defined as a sequence of activities that represent message exchange patterns between the entities involved. In BPMN this behavior is know as Collaboration.

Regarding your comment, it is important to mention that there are several types of sub-processes: http://help.bizagi.com/processmodeler/en/index.html?sub-process_types.htm. The only one you cannot add lanes is when the sub-process is embedded, but it´s possible when the sub-process is reusable.

Embedded Sub-processes are an Inline block, that group process elements used in a certain point in the process within a Sub-process. According to BPMN, a Sub-process should not have pools or lanes as they are dependent on the parent process and subsequently have visibility to the parent's global data.

In order to make use of pools, lanes and milestones diagram elements in a Sub-process, change your default Sub-process to a reusable Sub-process. Reusable Sub-processes allow all of these elements. Note, in BPMN reusable sub-processes are called "Call Activities".
