SICILY WILL HOST THE EFPA ITALIA MEETING 2016. OVER 500 PARTICIPANTS EXPECTED IN TAORMINA
Taormina has been nominated to host the European Financial Planning Association (EFPA) Italia Meeting 2016.
The Hilton Giardini Naxos will be the exclusive venue for the event organized by the service provider agency of EFPA ITALIA – Marketing Solutions – in partnership with Cogest M&C. On 5th – 6th May 2016 the major global investment companies and prominent personalities from the national and international economic and financial sectors will come to Sicily, chosen for the first time as the destination for this prestigious annual event, competing against high level destinations in the Italian MICE competition arena.
“We have always opted in favour for switching between the North and the South of Italy in determining the cities for our annual event” – said Aldo Vittorio Varenna, President EFPA Italia – “This year our choice has a specific vision: to expand the EFPA certification into other Italian regions in the southern area of the country, and we are aware of the attractiveness of the Sicilian territory. Needless to say, in fact, Taormina is a magnificent city, of great historical and scenic value. We are confident that Giardini Naxos will be the ideal set for the event, together with charming Taormina”.
More than 500 participants are expected among certified and non-certified professional financial advisors and planners. Moreover, numerous primary investment houses and financial advisors have already confirmed their sponsorship of the event. Such a high level of engagement is also due to the quality of the training program that characterizes the Association’s annual meetings. “The support from the Sicilia Convention Bureau is much appreciated“, said the organizing committee of the event.
“We are proud of this achievement and happy to host an event that we are sure will leave its participants excited about their experience” – says Daniela Marino, Director of Operations at Sicilia Convention Bureau – “Sicily will certainly be a pleasant surprise for many of them and we are confident It will be an inspiration for future events for professionals in the financial industry and beyond”.
