42nd Annual Conference & Talented Young Italians – Keynes Sraffa Awards 2021

Make a note in your diary for the most important event for business people working with Italy and the UK!
We are back with the Chamber’s most important event: the Annual Conference, which was first held in 1981. Over the years it has became a significant event in its own right and an obligatory date on the calendar of anyone dealing with Italy and the UK.

This year’s theme is “The Future of Business Relations between Italy and the UK: Effects of Covid-19, Brexit and Climate Change”, the hot topic of the moment.
The Conference will be followed by the Talented Young Italians 2021 and the Keynes Sraffa Awards, in collaboration with the Italian Embassy in London and the Talented Italians in the UK Association.
