Certified International Trade Fair

It is not easy to find the number, variety, and quality of startups comparable to those I saw at the WMF, reflecting an event that is growing year by year, becoming one of the most important in our country not only for innovative marketing but also for those involved in venture investing.

"Festival" or "trade fair" might be downplaying terms when describing the WMF: to this day, the event is able to attract the biggest projects and the most experienced representatives of the digital and innovation sector. So many stages and so many topics that you would like to follow, set in the beautiful city of Rimini.

WMF Rimini was one of the best marketing events rankingCoach has ever attended. We managed to talk to hundreds of existing, potential, and new customers and partners. The organization was superb and the venue excellent. We will be happy to attend again anytime and whoever doesn't is making a big mistake!
