Artex, thanks to the support of ITA – Italian Trade Commission is pleased to present Tuscan Collections MeeTalks, a special project addressed to buyers and retailers from all over the world interested in knowing and communicating with Tuscan handicraft companies. Tuscan Collections MeeTalks is a new online tool, where international buyers, architects, interior designer, blogger, influencers and companies can meet Italian manufacturers: digital events and lives focalized on 10 different traditional productions.
In Tuscan Collections MeeTalks the companies will have the opportunity to take the stage and present themselves, let’s say as if it were their own specific Tedtalk about handicraft. We will speak about lifestyle, design, working handicraft process, beauty, tradition, luxury and market positioning. The companies, during their live streaming, will give again to buyers the chance to enter inside their fascinating factories and beautiful showrooms. Buyers, on their side, will be able to assist and, if interested, reserve private business appointments.
