Casta Diva Group, the AIM Italia-listed multinational operating in the communication sector, was unveiled at the 14th BEA – Best Event Awards, the premier competition of the Italian events industry, which awarded the group in three prestigious areas:
- Best Event Ambassador, the award given to the personality who has best promoted the cultural and economic value of events directed to the public and institutions, presented to Luca Oddo and Andrea De Micheli, “for their committment in transforming the business of events and communication into an industrial enterprise, integrated in varied disciplines. Following its market listing the group now focuses on some of the most significant areas in communication, namely advertising spots, entertainment, feature films (notably, the recent successful premiere at the Venice Film Festival of the docufilm DIVA!), virtual reality (as a result of an agreement with Impersive) and events with the rebranding of Egg Events as Casta Diva Events. This represents a market positioning which makes the events and communication industry original and innovative for stakeholders.”
- First prize in Best Musical Event for JazzMi, the festival organised by Ponderosa and Teatro dell’Arte, which from 4th to 15th November 2016 galvanised the city of Milan with more than 120 events (concerts, exhibitions, encounters, workshops, reviews and much else): “the transformation that this made to Milan, even in unexpected areas of the city, meant that jazz was able to express itself in realities both consolidated and eye-opening, creating a completely new dynamic in a city in constant flux and surprisingly innovative.”
- Third Prize in Best Convention for a Coca-Cola event, produced in collaboration with CWT Meetings & Events. The magnificent venues were Rome’s Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria, the Villa Miani and the Acquario Romano.
Andrea de Micheli, CEO, and Luca Oddo, President: “We are particularly proud of these three new awards, which recognise the work of our team of experts who since 2008 have been conceiving and producing unforgettable corporate shows. We are characterised by a marked propensity for internationalism, and we consider that our key strength lies in the ability to connect individuals and companies through large-scale events and live shows. This diversity represents the core of our expertise, of our creativity and of our vision”.
