I.W. by COMITEL – Edition 10-11

CHICAGO - NEW YORK - From: 08/05/2007 To: 10/05/2007

Dear Friend,

Back from our American adventure we wish to share an analysis of the initiative.

The 10th edition of the Italian Workshop was held on 8th May in Chicago at the historical Drake Hotel, and the 11th edition took place on May 10th at the super central Cipriani 23rd Street.

These two prestigious venues were the perfect setting for the events, for their friendly and convivial atmosphere during the final gala dinners, but the great success of the events were surely due to the quality of contacts and to the several American operators interested to Italian product. More than 50 Italian operators have met with 98 companies in Chicago (141 operators) and 117 companies in New York (156 operators).

The main sponsors of the event, Abruzzo Region and the Autonomous Province of Trento had the chance to promote their tourist offer through a press conference with American media. A special thank goes to the Director of Enit (Italian Official tourist board) in North America, for the excellent work done by him and his staff.

Here below some of the comments received from American operators:

 I appreciated the opportunity of meeting with so many operators and I found the evening very informative and enjoyable. Sincerely (Stevens Travel – Tzell Travel Group Affiliate – New York)

Thank you so much for inviting us to the wonderful workshop at the Drake Hotel on May 8. We met some wonderful people and I am sure that we will be using these contacts in the future. Best regards. (Custom Tours In Tuscany – Chicago)

It was so professionally done and dinner was superb. We made many new contacts ourselves. (MICE Inc. – SIMONE Worldwide Tours and Cruises – New York)

Thank you for the opportunity to attend the Workshop in Chicago. We look forward to mutually successful business. (Oakbrook Travel – Chicago)

Thank you for inviting me to your conference. I received much needed information and hope to meet with suppliers on my next trip to Italy. I will be reporting on the conference at the ARTA meeting tomorrow in New York, as well as promoting the properties of the suppliers that I met. Grazie! (Yates Travel – New York)
