World Chambers Congress
Seven benefits of attending the 9th World Chambers Congress
With registration now open, the ICC WCF 9th World Chambers Congress is one step closer to you. From 10-12 June 2015, Torino will unite chamber leaders, business representatives, entrepreneurs and experts from all over the world.
Here are seven reasons you should be in Torino in June for the biggest chamber event of its kind.
Lend your support to declarations that impact chambers locally and globally
New declarations on entrepreneurs’ rights and the role of chambers of commerce and industry will be issued during the Congress. These declarations will aid chambers in their missions back home in their respective communities.
Join our daily “Network connections” sessions
These sessions are an exciting and effective way to meet with other delegates and add new contacts to your address book. An online matching system will help you register for this programme before the event.
Explore and showcase business opportunities at the Congress exhibition area
The event’s exhibition area is a unique platform for your chamber and its member companies to promote opportunities and activities in your region, or display specific products and services among an audience of trade professionals. Help your members explore foreign markets and develop investment opportunities.
Register for the Congress and receive a discount for Expo Milano 2015
Taking place in Milan, just 40 minutes from Torino by high-speed train, the Universal Exposition will showcase tradition, creativity and innovation in the field of nutrition. Uniting 144 countries under the slogan “Feeding the Planet: Energy for Life”, don’t miss the opportunity to explore some of the most ingenuous ideas of the future. An exciting post-congress tour awaits you!
Learn from and meet business delegates from all continents
The event is expected to attract 1,600 participants from 120 countries representing all regions of the world, as well as over a hundred internationally-renowned speakers. A truly global and inclusive meeting place for all, the Congress will welcome chamber leaders from 48 least-developed countries who have been invited and sponsored by the Torino Chamber of Commerce and Industry, the event co-organizer.
Join the circle of innovation champions
The Congress will also host the World Chambers Competition, the only global awards programme to recognize the most innovative projects undertaken by chambers of commerce and industry around the world. Since 2003, hundreds of chambers have submitted original projects across a wide range of disciplines. Are you ready to meet the innovators of tomorrow?
Spark up lively debates on global economic issues
The 2015 Congress will cover plenary issues around migration, sustainable resources, entrepreneurial development and good governance. Debate the impact of these challenges on your chamber and share your experience with global business representatives.
