So happy to share with you that I was invited to attend a private lunch with the CEO of Alcantara, Andrea Boragno. I was very grateful to have the opportunity to spend an hour, learning all about the company while enjoying great conversation and auto industry insights!
Based in Italy, the company operates on a global scale through the main centres of Milan headquarters – including Top Management, Design & Style department, Sales & Marketing offices, Communications activities, Administrative & Legal office – and Nera Montoro site (90 Km North of Rome), where the production plant and the R&D Centre are located, for a total area of 450,000 sqm.
Renowned for its unique and proprietary technology, over the years the company has developed prestigious collaborations with global luxury brand partners who choose Alcantara material for their creations in the fields of fashion, interior, automotive, yachting, aviation and consumer electronics.
Also loved the chance to network with other DC based bloggers, such as Fadra Nally and hear more about auto industry news!
The lunch was the perfect blend of Italian Hospitality while giving me insight as to how much Alcantara is investing in the fashion industry as well and positioning itself as being a trend setter for sustainability!
They were at the recent Global Citizen 2015 Earth Day celebration in Washington, D.C.. Alcantara was a different type of headliner as a title sponsor of the green-focused event.
