With UniCredit Start Lab we have been among the partners of the WMF since its first editions. We share with the Festival a curiosity and interest in innovation, having always been committed to supporting new entrepreneurship and start-ups. Over the years, the Festival has grown in terms of content quality as well as in the number of participants, a solid example of an enterprising Italy.

"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!
