In order to strengthen, consolidate and continuously improve what has become ‘the place to be’ for the European event community, ADC Group has established an Advisory Board composed by presidents of European events associations, journalists from leading publications in the field of events and corporate company managers who have been already part of EuBea Jury.
The Advisory Board’s mission is to improve the format of the EuBea Festival, and above all to adapt it to the changes and innovations on the market. The Advisory Board members are thus called to redefine the guidelines of the Festival, propose topics and international speakers, discuss the awards categories, examine the voting system and come up with new ideas.
EUBEA 2017 ADVISORY BOARD
The Advisory Board 2017 will gather from 16st to 18st March in Rimini, on the Adriatic coast of Italy, to discuss key principles and major improvements to the 12th edition of the International Festival of Events & Live Communication.
The Advisory Board Meeting will be held with the support and collaboration of the Rimini Riviera Convention Bureau, Event & Conference Division of Italian Exhibition Group SpA, and APT Servizi Emilia Romagna.
The working session will take place at the Palacongressi di Rimini, a modern, versatile, technological and eco sustainable venue. It is one of the largest facilities in Italy, providing a turnkey service for events of any scope or genre, from business conventions to medical-scientific symposiums, from religious gatherings to cultural, sports and association meetings.
The programme will start with a welcome cocktail and a dinner at the historical Grand Hotel Rimini. The working session on March 17 will be preceded by a site visit of the Palacongressi di Rimini, Best Location Award 2016, and by a greeting by Lorenzo Cagnoni, chairman of Italian Exhibition Group SpA. In the evening, Fellinian actors will guide guests to discover the historic centre of Rimini before a cocktail and the gala dinner at the famous Teatro Galli to taste local flavours. The three-day event will end with a visit of Santarcangelo di Romagna, a cosy medieval town near Rimini.
Andrea Faflíková, CEEMEA Senior PR&Event Manager of The LEGO Group will be officially introduced as President of the Jury. She will be the first woman to lead a panel composed by representatives of big corporations with international responsibilities and by members of European national event agencies’ associations.
