WHO WE ARE:
I.E.M. was established in 1999 by its two founding partners Giancarlo Voglino and Marina Nedic with the aim of building on the international experience they were able to mature in the fields of communication, marketing and event organization to promote Italian wine.
I.E.M.’s goal is to reduce the distance between a quality demand and a specific supply that is rooted in the values and production methods of a territory taken by the world as a role model for the variety and excellence of its winemaking offer.
I.E.M. examines the feasibility of specific events in different international markets with the aim of achieving tangible results for wine producers and their products. Building on a shared idea, I.E.M. creates customized initiatives capable of mirroring the characteristics and products of each wine producer while satisfying context requirements.
I.E.M. is specialized in the promotion of Italian wine in different markets through a unique and international tool at the service of Italian wine producers and associations: “Simply Italian Great Wines”.
I.E.M. represents the meeting point between each company’s expectations and the demand of the trade. Its clients can count on a high level of expertise acquired in the wine sector and on the courtesy and helpfulness of the staff, whose priority is to respect the client’s values and products. The solid relationship created in time with its local partners and the tight network of contacts involved in the organization of each event complete a framework that never overlooks the satisfaction of clients and participants or key values such as quality services, attention to detail and 360-degree assistance.
This is I.E.M.
QUALITY AND PROFESSIONALITY
By relying on I.E.M. to promote Italian wine around the world, means counting on a company that makes it its priority to search and identify new markets that show a propension for Italian wine and its consumption. It means taking part in events with a high profile thanks to the quality of its participants (selected wine professionals, members of trade, horeca, sommeliers, educators and journalists), and of the selected locations and to the reliability of its services. In other words, it means taking a decisive step forward towards the recognition of the work of each wine producing company worldwide.
I.E.M. offers a proven international credibility; in particular, it has been present since 2007 in the United States in Miami with IEEM – International Event and Exhibition Management with the specific aim of satisfying, on a daily basis, the needs of both Italian companies as well as wine professionals, journalists and opinion leaders of the entire American continent who show interest in our wines.
