About the Event

Following last year's successful first event, the ENIT Italian Tourist Board is inviting luxury Italian suppliers to meet with selected incentive UK buyers in The Connections Way.

Delegates will take part in experiences with an Italian flair, such as drawing (in recognition of Leonardi da Vinci, 500 years on), a mini-masterclass in perfumery and sampling of Italian dishes, with wine provided by St James's Hotel & Club.

Hosted at the ‘Wrenaissance’-inspired L’ oscar, located in the heart of Bloomsbury’s historic Holborn, the evening will be an intimate celebration of Italy for senior executives in the high-end travel industry.

Please contact Roberta Caucino-Lourenco for tailor-made, preferential rates.

Dress code

The Connections way works best when you embrace the experiences on offer. We would like you to be prepared so here are some useful information in advance of the event.

During the day we would advise that all delegates dress in a comfortable/casual attire.

Suits and ties are not required – we are in a relaxed environment and want you to feel comfortable.

Think carefully about heels – some of the experiences on offer may require a bit of walking, so heels can be a problem if you want to join some of the activities on offer.

Experiences

Here at Connections, we’re dedicated to creating the best possible environment to help our buyers and suppliers create deep, lasting business relationships with each other.

Connections Experiences are intended to act as replacements for tabletop introductory meetings. Instead of sitting in a conventional one to one meeting, we encourage you to try an activity together for 10 – 15 minutes as an icebreaker and then return to your assigned table to discuss further business opportunities.

Here is a list of activities, to give you an idea of what to expect:

- Supercar experience
- Mocktail making
- Wine tasting
- Tour of the hotel
- Pasta making
