The Department for International Trade Italy, based at the British Consulate General Milan, in partnership with Regione Lombardia, is planning the first Italy Tech Show, a two day initiative on 10 and 11 March, hosted in Milan’s skyscraper Pirelli, home of Regione Lombardia.
The event has a strong focus on Technology and Innovation and it originates from the desire to increase the opportunities for collaboration and contamination between the UK and Italy. It will offer highly innovative companies a series of networking and high-visibility initiatives, that will also include VIP guests.
The first day of the project – March 10 – has been thought as a European platform for women-leaders from different countries who work in the tech field, to discuss and share their experiences. The day will end with the European Women in Tech Awards ceremony.
On the second day of the project – March 11 – the UK-Italy Tech Showcase will be open to selected guests from business, research, institutions, universities and the press and will offer invitees the opportunity to engage and interact with various high-level and innovative products and technologies from both countries.
The dates proposed coincide with the Milan Digital Week (11-15 March), a citywide festival dedicated to technology and innovation with more than 500 events happening in the city within the same week.
