Finally it’s official; the launch of our 15th branch – YoungShip Italy – is set to the central port city of Genova during the annual Genova Shipping Week 16-22 September.
The launch with our great initiators, supporters (including the President of V.Ships, Roberto Giorgi), guests and the press will be held onboard the beautiful yacht D/Y Dionis, Thursday 19 September. I have been asked to give a speech, and also received a really nice invitation from Alberto Banchero and Caroline Villa to attend the Shipbrokers & Shipagents Dinner the following evening.
From the GSW press release,Alberto Banchero, President of “Young Shipbrokers and Shipagents Group” of Genoa stated: «Genoa Shipping Week reinforces the traditional Gala Dinner as an instrument to enhance and promote the primary role of Genoa in the international shipping industry. Above all, during this intense period of economic crisis, the new event represents an opportunity of encounter and broadly shared goals and ideas with the representatives of all the different realities of the shipping sector».
Can’t wait to meet familiar and new faces in Italy. If you’re planning to go to Genova, make sure to join the GSW2013!
