They say I’m intransigent. They say I’m diplomatic. All this, together with an eternal English aplomb. Probably it’s all true. I am also determined to always give of my best and that is possibly my best quality. At times I can be a little “reckless”; twice I have jumped in with my eyes closed – first time when I joined the Sicily CB and then at the CBI – but they have proved to be the moves which have given me the greatest satisfactions.

Twelve years full of passion in Communication, Great Events and international Festival, related to the cultural field and to the performing arts. My purpose in the MICE sector is to bring to it creativity and originality.

Friendly and empathetic, I have always been fascinated by the magical world of events. Despite a strong passion for technology and computer science, cultivated during my university studies, I experienced the organization of events from two fundamental points of view: from the agency’s and the corporate’s one. During my experience in CBI I understood that the satisfaction that comes from a successful event is peerless.

An English-Italian mix, made of words, stubbornness and curiosity: the passion for new discoveries, interactions and new challenges has taken me from the world of science and medicine, to the world of DMCs, from the magic philanthropy of Dynamo Academy, to, finally, the world of MICE, the MICE of the Bel Paese.

Serena Travaglini

Communication Project Leader

Writing, creating, composing and writing again: playing with words and pictures is my job, and I love it. My educational background and experiences have driven me to the Digital Communication, a constantly changing world. I believe that passion and determination could take people far and that loving what we do every day is a great privilege.
I’m really happy to play my part in spreading MICE culture in Italy and worldwide!
