November 2012: Ready for the GWC AGM in Florence!


November is a perfect time to visit Florence and Tuscany: no queues to visit the monuments, season typical food products to be tasted like white truffles, newly pressed extra virgin olive oil, wild mushrooms, game, chestnuts, and some exciting cultural events; more, last but not least, the Annual General meeting of the Great Wine Capitals network!


Everything is almost ready to welcome in Florence the eight delegations from the GWC network for the conference which will be held this year in November from 4th to 8th. After more than one decade the meeting comes back in one of the founding cities and it will give the occasion to visit this beautiful town rich in art and culture, as well as to tour in the countryside to learn about some of the most famous Tuscan wineries.

For all the partners of the network who are planning to come, the 2012 AGM website is there:

It is useful to check the program of the meeting, to search for accommodations and to choose the wine tour organised for November 7th, but it is also necessary to fill in the form on line to be registered as part of the official delegations. It is better to do this as soon as possible, in order to have the best rates guaranteed, especially for the accommodation.

For those who travel from other continents this could be the occasion to stay a little longer in order to experience one of the pre and post- conference tours organised by our Travel Network partner which have been wisely studied in order to offer unforgettable moments enjoying the best of Tuscany or Italy.

The working sessions of the meeting will be held right in the centre of the town, so all the attendants will cross the Cathedral square before starting the meeting of the commissions or at the end of the afternoon, or they may have the possibilities to take a look at major monuments even during the lunch breaks.

The team of Metropoli, the special agency of the Chamber of Commerce, has been working in the last year to organize the event and they will help in any specific request related to this event.

So open the website, surf the net and register yourself for the 2012 GWC AGM in Florence!
