S Magazine was first introduced to the unique services of Piemonte InContract at Hotelympia 2010, where they


were exhibiting. Basically, they are an Italian government agency set up to help the companies who are based in the Piemonte region to trade more with overseas companies. Exports from the region already exceed €37 billion - more than 10% of the national total – so Piemonte InContract are uniquely placed to run this initiative, using an existing platform to develop new and exciting business opportunities overseas. But do they actually make trading easier? To put them to the test we were


asked to invite a small delegation of UK specifiers, including designers, architects and contractors, who had an interest in dealing with Italian suppliers but no prior experience of doing so. Delegates were asked to select the companies they were keen to see from an extensive list ranging from product manufacturers to suppliers of raw materials (Piemonte is renowed for the quality of its stone and marble). Piemonte InContract were left to do the rest: they put together an agenda which included dozens of introductions,


one-to-one business meetings and various site and factory visits, all within a short but comfortable time frame. Their organisation skills are exceptional


and the event went hitch-free. They are reliable, professional and have an enthusiastic and knowledgeable team. As a service we recommend them highly and more importantly, so do our delegation of buyers. “Hugely impressive...unpressured... met companies we’d like to do business with” were just some of the comments recorded. Italian furniture, fabrics and finishes will give any project an edge and through Piemonte InContract, we’ve found an easy way to source them.
