Furniture Cluster FVG @ Swedish Furniture Parliament
After the positive Chinese experience with the participation of the Furniture FVG at the Shenzen Fair, the Friulian furniture returns to Europe to represent Made in Italy, this time in Sweden, at the Swedish Furniture Parliament, an event that is taking place in these days in Värnamo, in the County of Jönköping.
An interesting event with a focus on the world of furniture in which leading manufacturers, operators and small businesses looking for potential new forms of collaboration are confronted in sessions and debates.
As unique foreign guests, the President of the Furniture Cluster, Franco di Fonzo, and the Director, Carlo Piemonte, were invited to represent Made in Italy - to act as speakers at the "Swedish Furniture Parliament", in the presence of the Minister of Industry and Innovation, the county administrators and an audience of over 200 entrepreneurs and managers. It is not the first time that Cluster goes to the homeland of Ikea: in fact, for more than a year, a lot of collaborations have been started with the Swedish "cousin". "We share the activities of the respective Clusters and at the same time we talk about the value of Made in Italy that we represent - comments di Fonzo - and that is identity, art, history, creativity, taste. After the experience of the Elmia fair, trading operations have begun with our companies that we hope will always grow more. We have invited Swedish operators to return to visit our companies in order to discovering our production capacities and brands that operate internationally ".
In addition to presenting the activities of the FVG Cluster and its experiences in the field of innovation, internationalization and aggregation, the Director of Piemonte illustrated the new projects concerning the traceability of products and catalogues and the management of business networks, who see in Cluster and in Icide a reference point for global development. Furniture Cluster will continue to consolidate and oversee international relations with the equivalent Swedish Cluster to continue the exchange of best practices and share future international projects.
