On October 21 and 22, Banca Popolare di Sondrio Deputy General Manager Mario Erba had the pleasure of attending the opening of the International Wine Expo Chicago (IWE), an event that marked Vinitaly's trade show debut in the United States of America, organised thanks to the cooperation of Italian American Chamber of Commerce Midwest, Italian Trade & Investment Agency, Italian Expo and Veronafiere. 

About 400 buyers registered for the event and more than 200 Italian companies exhibiting there, including several clients of the Sondrio banking institution who joined the fair on convenient terms, thanks to the bank's long-time cooperation agreement with the Chicago Chamber.

“The event turned out to be an incredible opportunity for many companies, who were able to approach the United States market and meet with specialised buyers coming mainly from the Midwest, a region with a high concentration of demand for Italian wine.”, said Mario Erba. “It is well known that our Bank is distinguished by a strong international vocation that allows it to get in touch with institutions, such as the Italian Chambers of Commerce Abroad, which prove to be indispensable entities for supporting Made in Italy throughout the world. Bank corporate clients interested in expanding their business in the American market, but not only, can contact our International Service (businessclass@popso.it) for personalised assistance”.
