Trade Mission Milan
HTNK was asked by the Dutch Consulate in Milan to organize part of the Dutch trade mission to Italy (June). We chose to highlight the denim industry, which connects Italy and The Netherlands on a day-to-day basis. For the occasion a Global Denim Awards exhibition went on display at La Triennale Di Milano. The exhibition focused on the Italian and Dutch collaborations over the last three years – thereby highlighting the best practices of Dutch-Italian co-creation.
It was a pleasure and honour to host the King and Queen of the Netherlands, Willem-Alexander and Máxima, at the exhibition. HTNK, House of Denim and Modint also organized a ‘Best of Both’ impact debate involving Dutch and Italian industry leaders. Dutch and Italian stakeholders from government, education and enterprise discussed how to improve Italian and Dutch collaborations.
Milano, ti amo. And our King and Queen rock.
