September 22nd, 2016 - Villa d'Este, Lago di Como, Cernobbio
Apax Partners is a British private equity and venture capital firm. Since 1969, the year it was established, it has been one of the first to invest in new technologies and has held shares in companies like Apple and America Online.
The group's mission is "releasing potential", the concept that permeates all aspects of the company and makes it highly dynamic and forward-thinking. The events created with Apax have therefore a unique style, relevant content and high organizational standards.
After working together in 2015 for their event in Venice, Apax Partners once again confirmed our collaboration for its annual meeting and this time we went to Cernobbio on Lake Como. Villa d'Este, one of the most prestigious locations in the world, was for 4 days the operational basis of the Nexa team and the Apax working group for the final stages of the development of the organizational activities, from meetings to the setup, from logistics to the organization of the tours.
Nexa handled all the transfers from the Milan airports to Cernobbio as well as all local travel. In addition, our team of experts designed a number of tours giving the opportunity to guests to share unique experiences. Besides the cooking school with a high-profile chef, visits to craft shops and nature tours, the activity that really left its mark was the much-anticipated vintage car tour. The wow factor were the 15 classic vintage cars parked in the park of Villa d'Este, ready for the guests at the closing of the business meeting, where photos were taken while adrenaline levels rose, followed by the briefing with the operators and the departure in style for a drive on the hills surrounding the lake.
Also this time, our experience with Apax was excellent, and the feed back highly positive, so we really hope to share with them another location for their next meeting.
