Host AMIN Italy MilkAdv
Let’s all meet in the romantic city Verona in northern Italy’s Veneto region, a medieval old town built between the meandering Adige River. The city is famous for being the setting of Shakespeare’s "Romeo and Juliet." A 14th-century residence with a tiny balcony overlooking a courtyard is said be “Juliet’s House." The Verona Arena is a huge 1st-century Roman amphitheater, which currently hosts concerts and large-scale opera performances.
The AMIN Worldwide EMEA Conference 2018 will take place in the beautiful Due Torri Hotel. We will be just steps away from the balcony of Shakespeare's Juliet, Piazza Bra and the Arena, the cradle of Italian and international opera, in the maze of Roman streets of old Verona. Since the fourteenth century, a building known as Palazzo dell'Aquila (Palace of the Eagle) has been located here. It was the era of transition from a town to “Signoria”, and the long reign of the Scala family, who with Cangrande I, the imperial vicar, inserted the Habsburg eagle in the family crest. From the early 1400s until 1730 the building belonged to the family of Bordieri. Bordieri were cutlers originating from Brescia, who had moved to Verona at the end of 1300s, became goldsmiths and conquered a solid position. These protagonists of important social rise, acquired the austere Scala Palace as a status symbol matching their ambitions. In 1674 they were the ones who made the palace become the inn. The city, already a cultural and economic hub, was still recovering from the Great Plague of 1630, which had wiped out more than half of population.
Being in a historic place creates a great atmosphere to look at the future! There will be a lot of interaction between members around what is happening in the network and our industry.
We will have an inspiring guest speaker Matteo Flora, CEO and Founder of The Fool, leading Italian company for Online Reputation Analysis and Defense of Intellectual Property. In 2012 Matteo had been selected for the prestigious International Visitor Leadership Program (IVLP) on “Combating Cybercrime”. Furthermore, in the latest years Matteo has acted as Expert Witness in some of the most important Italian IP Protection cases. He is also a Digital Rights and Media Activist.
After his talk he will take an active role in break-out sessions in smaller groups and will offer the attendees great take aways.
Apart from this all there will be best case presentations by members, we will celebrate Milk Adv’s 10th Anniversary Party and much more!
