The speaker for the luncheon is Dr. Alberto Sacchi, President of FEDERMACCHINE, Italian National Federation of Associations of Manufacturers of Capital Goods. He will part of a moderated session with leading journalists and attendees comprised of top-C level international executives from all areas of manufacturing; on the directions and strategies manufacturing is taking to maintain their competitiveness in ever-changing global markets. The President of the Italian Trade Commission, Honorable Umberto Vattani, and Mr. Michael Porter, noted international strategist, will also address the luncheon.

Machines Italia will be present at the Forum with an exhibition booth promoting all 14 sectors of the campaign and their respective associations.
