Debora Piovesan, Head of Events of the association, says, “This 2020 edition is again placed under the sign of the collective intelligence. The world of corporate communication and particularly the corporate events sector is highly impacted by the deep changes taking place in our society; obviously by the technological revolution but also by changes in society, culture and even climate. You therefore constantly need to adapt and innovate to achieve the desired performance.”

“This Congress will be an excellent opportunity for all Heads of Communication, Marketing and Corporate Events to enhance their knowledge, get inspiration from the different contributors to the congress (peers, speakers, facilitators and partners) and to actively contribute to the development of a new stage, a new era for event communication, based on innovation and performance.”
