Registration will close soon for participation in Italy at Hand, The Event which Convention Bureau Italia is organising in Bologna from 1st to 3rd November. The programme will be 3 days of full-immersion in business and interactive proceedings made in Italy for 30 qualified local professionals and 45 leading international players.
There has been a steady increase in applications from both suppliers as well as buyers: to date 27 top local suppliers have been confirmed so that only 3 vacancies are now available to complete the range of Italian conference offers. Application is open until 31st August 2018.
As applications are decidedly in excess of the posts available, they will be assigned on the basis of the requirements of both Italian conference supply and of the buyers involved.
As for international buyers, over 100 applications have been received and they come mainly from decision-makers in the European market of the meetings industry. They are corporations, agencies and associations based in Europe in the key markets of the Benelux, France, Germany, Spain and the UK.
It will be the task of CBItalia to select the international buyers participating in the Italy at Hand event. We will conform to profiling guidelines with our usual high standards. Buyer selection will be completed by the first week of September.
