The role of “think tank” is confirmed
“This edition of e-P Summit Florence 2023 has once again demonstrated the uniqueness of the format, which combines the congress event with the exhibition-fair dimension – underlined the scientific director Rinaldo Rinaldi -. A very large audience of over 250 representatives of fashion and luxury companies followed the debates and the topics analysed. And this thanks to the very high quality of the speakers who discussed each other through both specific round tables and in the case histories brought to the stage by the companies themselves, confirming the role of a real “think tank” of the event itself”.
