The Italian conference and events industry association has elected a new president.

Gabriella Gentile is the new President of Federcongressi&eventi, the national association of conference and events companies. The election took place during the association’s 13th national convention, held in Treviso on 25-26 March.

Gabriella Gentile succeeds Alessandra Albarelli, who remained in office for two consecutive presidential mandates, and has all-round expertise in the conference and events sector. She is an expert in destination marketing and destination management in the MICE area, and has almost twenty years’ experience at Bologna’s Palazzo dei Congressi conference centre.

“The goal I have set myself in my mandate is to strengthen among institutions both the sector’s identity and Federcongressi&eventi’s role as a proactive point of reference in planning actions to support the entire sector”, says Gabriella Gentile. “In such a period of rapid and unpredictable change in social and economic scenarios, we need to stimulate innovation in members, boosting not only the association’s training offer but also its networking activities, and give them an opportunity to exchange best practices also at international level”.
