UEFA Euro 2016 - Go Italy!

The countdown is finally over: the 2016 UEFA European Championship started last week! It is Europe’s biggest sporting event, expected to attract more than 7 million people over the month-long tournament. French DJ David Guetta has been elected the musical ambassador of the tournament, and he rocked the June 10 opening ceremony in Paris. We also have a new mascot: his name is Super Victor, he's a little boy with a genius for football and he will accompany us through all the Euro 2016 matches. 
This year, the number of competing teams has been expanded from 16 to 24. Therefore, together with the past champions - Spain is the most winning team, having collected 3 trophies - we will find many new entries such as Iceland, Ireland, Wales, Slovakia and Albania. There are also some comebacks, for example Hungary, which has not been participating since 1972!

Italy started its Euro 2016 adventure with a blast: last Monday, the Azzurri won 2-0 against Belgium, the leader of 2015 FIFA's ranking - a great kick-off! This Friday, Italy will be facing Sweden of Zlatan Ibrahimovic: it is going to be another demanding match for our National Team, fingers crossed and let's support Italy from all around the world!

Lunch Seminar: What You Need To Know When Relocating Your Asia Pacific Headquarter

June 30, 12:30-2PM

The Asian Head Quarter is a strategic decision for all international and multinational groups. A strong presence in Asia is more and more relevant for any firm that wants to either have business or extend its influence in the area. Shanghai, Singapore, Hong Kong, Bangkok and Kuala Lumpur seems to be key locations for regional hubs.
In many Asian or South-East Asian countries it is paramount to have a HQ, in order to be closer to the market and to develop tighter relations with the suppliers, customers and local authorities.
The aim of this seminar is to show not only the importance of having a HQ in one or more Asian countries, but also to understand the gap between different countries, especially in terms of taxation, business policies and relevant regulations.
