Beyond Expo: Innovative and Sustainable Approaches to Health, Energy and the Environment

XXXVII Annual Conference – Italian Chamber of Commerce & Industry for the UK

The Chamber's most important event is its Annual Conference, first held in 1981. Over the years it has become a significant event in its own right and an obligatory date on the calendar of anyone dealing with Italy and the UK. Attendees included senior bankers, economists, lawyers and decision makers from Italy and the UK involved in a wide spectrum of business activities between the two countries. Speakers and Guests of Honour were of the highest level and included Government ministers and representatives of both countries.

The theme was Beyond Expo: Innovative and Sustainable Approaches to Health, Energy and the Environment. Health, energy and environment are three sectors that impact on our daily life. Their handling constitutes a major feat. They are subtly interwoven, and a successful long-term management of their risks would possibly profit from resilience. To this end, a holistic approach that merges ethical, economic, social, industrial and scientific aspects could prove instrumental.

Key Speakers included:

  • Prof. Romano Prodi (Italian Prime Minister 1996-1998/2006-2008)
  • Prof. Sir David King, Foreign Secretary’s Special Representative for Climate Change
  • Tricia Kennerley,VP Director of International Public Affairs, Walgreens Boots Alliance
  • Diana Bracco, President, EXPO 2015

Prof. Robert Leonardi, Visiting Professor at LUISS Guido Carli University, Rome and Tony Barber, European Editor, Financial Times chaired the Conference.

They were delighted to announce that, as by tradition, the current Italian Ambassador, H.E. Pasquale Terracciano, was the Honorary President of the Conference.

The Conference was followed by a formal luncheon, and other receptions and dinners are usually held in honour of the participants.
