The evening will begin with a fascinating tour to discover one of the oldest residences in the capital and will continue with a stand-up dinner and authentic Italian-style entertainment. 

The morning of November 8th will be dedicated to Business Meetings that will be held in the Auditorium Parco della Musica, Renzo Piano’s contemporary masterpiece. There Italian offers will meet up with international demand, through set appointments with the guarantee of a meeting among all the participants during the course of the three-day event. 

The afternoon will be dedicated to interactive activities that characterise the format as devised by CBItalia, and will be inspired by Italy at Hand keywords. The absolute protagonist: Italian know-how, with partners of extraordinary calibre. 

Buyers and Exhibitors will discover and test themselves in unconventional activities inspired respectively by art, innovation, love and Italian rituals. They will be able to fully immerse themselves in Italian culture through its innovations in the field of architecture, contemporary art, and arthouse cinema, recreating cult scenes from great films and savouring our local coffee ritual with the internationally renowned giant of the industry, Lavazza.
