Success stories and advice from internationalisation experts
The event will close with a selection of business success stories and with B2B meetings with ICE experts to identify individual internationalisation strategies, and with experts from the organisations taking part in the road show. The initiative sees all of the actors of System Italy – from both the public and the private sector – engaged in a joint medium-term effort throughout Italy.
During the programme, public institutions, business organisations and key players from the world of finance will be meeting companies in a programme of events promoting internationalisation. Throughout 2015 and 2016 events will be taking place in Genoa, Cagliari, Monza, Catania, L'Aquila, Cosenza, Bergamo, Potenza, Vicenza, Pisa, Reggio Calabria, Novara, Forli', Cremona, Como and Campobasso. Each meeting will open with a plenary session with internationalisation experts who will illustrate the opportunities and instruments available to help companies enter foreign markets. During the events businesses who have signed up for one-to-one sessions will be able to meet specialists who will help them draw up tailor-made internationalisation plans.
