With Apax Partners in the heart of Florence and in the Chianti area
September 18th/21st, 2018 - Florence
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 the 2015 experience in Venice and in 2016 on Lake Como, Apax Partners reconfirmed its confidence in Nexa for its annual meeting.
This time the event took place in Florence and the operational base was the prestigious Four Seasons Hotel where the Nexa team and the Apax team took care of all the organizational details. This year, in fact, Nexa was in charge of the all-around organization of the event,planning and supervising every moment of the program: from guests' transfers to custom tailored activities and itineraries, the spouse program and dinners in exclusive locations. All with the trademark of professionalism that characterizes us and an overall focus on the discovery of Tuscan tradition and culture.
In addition to the nature trails and cultural visits, the experience that was most appreciated was the Vespa tour with vintage motor scooters: the guests were briefed, helmets were donned and wheels started spinning up the Tuscan hills as far as Impruneta in Chianti. Parallel to the morning outing, the spouse program had scheduled an exclusive experience at Aquaflor, where participants were guided along an olfactory journey to discover the Maison.
No less breathtaking were the venues chosen for the lunches and dinners. The exclusive location for the gala dinner was Villa le Corti where guests could also visit the family's wine cellar. While Frescobaldi and Cantine Antinori were the natural choice to accompany guests to experience the high point of Tuscan food and wine tradition.
Also this year, the experience with Apax was excellent, the feedback more than positive, and the event took place in a climate of collaboration and harmony. We really hope to be with them again for another destination in view of their next meeting.
