Global Group CEO, Corrado Peraboni, was in the country to enhance strategic relations and local partnerships
Recognizing the strategic importance that Brazil represents on the global stage, Fiera Milano, one of the most important trade fairs promoters of the world, held, on Wednesday, November 11, a meeting with partners, business people and representatives of organizations. The event took place in Terraço Itália, in São Paulo.
The meeting was held during the visit of the newly appointed global CEO of Fiera Milano, Corrado Peraboni, who came to the country to intensify strategic alliances with associations and authorities, as well as presenting, along with the Brazil’s CEO Graziano Messana, the Fiera Milano project in the world and showing the depth and breadth of the market to Brazilian businessmen.
Market leader in Italy, Fiera Milano annually attracts about five million visitors yearly. Last year, 113 events were held (51 in Italy and 62 abroad) which included the participation of nearly 33,000 exhibitors – 22 000 fairs on Italy and almost 11,000 events in other countries, including China, India, Brazil, South Africa, Russia and Thailand.
In this context, the Group reinforces Brazil as one of its priority markets. In addition to strategic actions for the development of business, the focus of Fiera Milano in the country through Cipa Fiera Milano subsidiary, is to continue the strengthening of the events already consolidated and market leaders like Exposec | International Security Fair, the main technological showcase in Latin America for the electronic security systems market and FISP | International Fair of Safety and Security, the biggest event of the sector in Latin America focused on occupational safety and health.
On the occasion, Peraboni pointed out that the direct presence in São Paulo, Cipa Fiera Milano company headquarters, was strategically chosen because the major international groups are present there. He also presented the various opportunities offered by Fiera Milano, through its global network to maximize exposure and business of exhibitors during the events.
Another point discussed was the synergy between headquarters products in Milan and the Brazilian branch. An example of this partnership will be the concretized between Sicurezza, biennial event focused on the security sector, held in Italy, and Exposec, allowing an ample interchange of business, information and technologies. “In 2015 we received Brazilian businessmen in Sicurezza in Milan and in 2016 Exposec will feature extensive cooperation between Fiera Milano headquarters and the Italian Government represent by the Italian Trade Agency – ITA, for the participation of Italian exhibitors. It will be another stage of a concrete exchange, “said the executive, and similar projects have already happened at Tubotech-Wire this year.
