The Event will provide platform to cultivate meaningful business opportunities between the UK and Italy

Connections, the international private community for senior executives in high-end travel,will host the second edition of the Italian Tourist Board Experiential Workshop in partnership with ENIT this autumn.

Hosted at the 'Wrenaissance'-inspired L'oscar in London on 26 September, the evening event will be an intimate celebration of Italy for senior executives in the high-end travel industry, with up to 50 decision makers invited to attend.

Following last year's successful first event,Italian luxury suppliers will meet with selected UK-based meetings & incentives buyers in "The Connections Way",the company's approach to facilitating long-lasting business relationships through memorable shared experiences.

Senior executives will participate in meetings and experiences with an Italian flair. Activities planned will highlight the country's rich history, culture (in recognition of the 500-year anniversary of Leonardo da Vinci's death) and cuisine, and will include the sampling of Italian dishes with wine provided by St James's Hotel & Club.

Flavio Zappacosta, Manager for UK & Ireland, ENIT, said: "We are delighted to be working with the Connections team on this event in London, which will allow us to showcase a number of Italian luxury services to buyers in the UK.

"Connections runs professional and efficient events, bringing only the best buyers from around the globe to experience our destination. Our private sector continues to benefit from the relationships made at Connections; this new, innovative way of doing business has proved to be invaluable."

Micaela Giacobbe, founder of Connections, said: "This will be our fifth event in collaboration with the Italian Tourist Board and we cannot thank itenough for their invaluable support and contribution. Since our first event together at Rocco Forte Verdura Resort, Sicily, in 2016, we have worked together at events in London, Puglia, Tuscany and Courmayeur."
