The one-year countdown to the International Chamber of Commerce (ICC) World Chambers Federation (WCF) 9th World Chambers Congress, one of the most anticipated events in the chamber calendar, began on June 10. WCF is a specialized division of ICC encompassing chambers of commerce from every region of the world.
To mark the occasion, Congress organizers held a press conference in Turin, Italy to present a snapshot of the latest Congress developments. The briefing, which took place at Palazzo Birago – headquarters of the Torino Chamber of Commerce – featured President of Torino Chamber Alessandro Barberis and Director of the Torino Chamber Guido Bolatto who were joined by the Secretary General of ICC Italy Maria Beatrice Deli.
To start the countdown, WCF and Torino Chamber launched the Congress website, a one-stop portal providing the latest Congress news featuring information on every aspect of the event, from the venue and program to sponsorship opportunities. The website is accessible on mobile devices and tablets making it even easier to stay informed. WCF and Torino Chamber also announced an agreement with Expo 2015, the corporation that will fulfill commitments undertaken by the Italian Republic regarding the 2015 Universal Exposition in Milan, which will take place from May 1 to October 31 2015.
