I would like to thank you all for the organisation of Meet The Best. I found the experience and opportunity for networking and making good new contacts extremely positive.

Jayne Seddon – Casa Collina Events

Dear Elisabetta and team. I want to take the chance and time to sincerely thank you for an amazing last event I have attended with you. Not only the city of Matera has impressed me, but what you all have done to make it memorable was the cherry on the cake. The choice of locations and service have always been impeccable, as well as selection and variety of buyers.. it really made the difference. Last but not least, you and your team were the added value to the whole experience, always responsive, always assertive and always available, with a real winning and customer oriented mindset which is rare to find in these hectic days we are living.
