The 30 companies which have been invited will have a schedule filled with meetings with over a hundred buyers, suppliers and showrooms from those international markets which have proven to be the most receptive to eveningwear Made in Italy. The companies will also have the opportunity to participate to the Exposition runway show which will be held on the 22th of November at 21:00 at the Salerno Harbour Station Zaha Hadid and which will be followed by the fashion show presenting the new Marchesa collection, special guest of the evening.
