The exhibitions concern major Italian sectors of production, such as: Food & Beverage, Green, Technology, Entertainment, Tourism, Transport, Wellness, Jewellery and Fashion, Lifestyle & Innovation.
The aim of the Company is to be a hub for the country’s most representative industrial sectors and promote them internationally, in the role of ambassador for the Beautiful and Well Made in Italy worldwide.
To this end, IEG makes a priority asset of internationalisation, attracting foreign buyers and exhibitors to Italy and developing business in strategic foreign markets.
