The Chamber's most important event is its Annual Conference, first held in 1981. It was originally scheduled just prior to the International Monetary Fund as an informal get together of the participants en route from Italy to Washington or one of the other venues abroad. Over the years it has became a significant event in its own right and an obligatory date on the calendar of anyone dealing with Italy and the UK.
This year’s theme is "2014 - The Future of Europe". Illustrious speakers such as George Osborne, Pier Carlo Padoan and John Elkann have already confirmed their presence. Attendees include senior bankers, economists, lawyers and businesspeople from Italy and the UK involved in a wide spectrum of business activities between the two countries.
We are delighted to announce that, as by tradition, the current Italian Ambassador, H.E. Pasquale Terracciano, will be the Honorary President of the Conference.
