Inauguration of Casa CDN on 13 and 14 December in Milan, in the former Ares Line Spazio Eventi.
Nicola Franceschi, CEO of Ares Line, came up with the idea for the Contract Design Network (CDN) in 2011 and it has gone on to gain its own identity and strength over the years.
The CDN is based on a strategic business agreement between 11 Italian companies which together have total revenues of over Euro 70 million, employ a workforce of around 300 people and have a sales force of over 200 professionals. So far, they have performed almost 100 joint projects, for estimated revenues of over Euro 10 million (principally over the last three years).
Casa CDN is the place where people and things come together to develop CDN business. One of the major driving forces behind this space is Fabio Maset, owner of MosaicoGroup, one of the network's most dynamic companies. It will be home to the entire CDN team. Casa CDN will be the place where the CDN partners meet and also the location for training events and the presentation of new products and solutions.
The area is on three levels and includes a small multi-purpose room with seating for around 20 people on the ground-floor level, home to all the innovative aspects of the 11 companies involved. There is also a meeting area and a joint workspace with 8 workstations on the ground floor and the first floor, and a second conference room seating 24 people in the basement.
There are video and audio connections in all rooms, which all have the latest technological equipment.
We believe that Casa CDN is the way forward and that it will be an attractive breeding ground for new ideas. The intention is to open others in various strategic cities and add to the CDN showrooms already operating in Paris Rabat and Managua.
Two evening events have been organised to welcome our guests and open the doors of Casa CDN.
On 13 and 14 December, with entry from 4 p.m. to 8:30 p.m., we will be offering the chance to visit the areas showcasing the new products of the eleven CDN companies.
There will be an evening of musical entertainment and a light finger food buffet for our guests.
