CELEBRATING EXTRAORDINARY ITALIAN STYLE IN CHICAGO
by John Russel Jones Aug 09, 2022
The Italian Trade Agency (ITA) section of the Chicago Collective was the largest presentation of Italian vendors ever to appear at the show, incorporating more than 60 brands, and generating quite a bit of excitement on the show floor. To help retailers get into the spirit, ITA started off each day with an authentic Italian espresso bar, and kicked off each evening with a tasty apertivo, complete with small bites, cocktails, and maybe just a touch of la dolce vita.
