networking opportunities

The UNESCO Conference will be a great opportunity to develop relationships, contacts, synergies, and cooperative projects on an institutional, cultural, and entrepreneurial level.

For this reason, appropriate spaces will be designated, inside the Pavilions of Creativity, to create favourable conditions for exchanging opinions, presenting ideas and projects in an ideal context to share information and knowledge in different fields.

Institutions, cultural operators, and businesspersons will have the opportunity to obtain information in advance about representatives of the various cities that will attend the event held in Fabriano to allow them to successfully make preliminary contact.
