MCI Group expands into Italy with new office and appointments

Congress and events management company MCI Group has announced the expansion of its service offering in Italy.

The group has an active presence in the country through Ovation Global DMC, with an office in Rome, and will focus on offering national and regional conferences and congresses to its clients from a new office in Florence.

To spearhead the new service, the company has appointed Luigi Cammi and Maria Cristina Schiavone, two industry veterans with years of experience in the associations market. With MCI continuing its international growth strategy, Italy has become the next strategic step for expanding its PCO business in the European region.

Michael Libotte, Managing Director, MCI Italy commented: “The expansion of MCI’s service offering in Italy has been on top of our priority list. We have identified a strong alignment of our core brand values with Luigi and Maria Cristina and for this reason, the synergy came into existence.

The opening of a PCO office in Florence is viewed as a natural fit as we recognise Luigi’s and Maria Cristina’s commitment and experience in this demanding market. We look forward to adding more value to our existing and new partnerships by joining forces.”

MCI is headquartered in Geneva, Switzerland and has a global presence. It now has 62 owned offices in 31 countries and counts 10 international partnerships.

More than 2,300 employees are working closely with international corporate and association clients from different industries, and deliver approximately 6,000 projects in more than 80 countries per year.
