Top Brokers Gather from Around the World

The conference in Florence covered multiple topics of great interest to those who serve the high net-worth demographic. Discussions focused on what strategies are most effective in the current world economy, ways to build business and establish connections in international markets and using social media tools to impact your business.
Social events were held at local restaurants where attendees enjoyed Italian culture and cuisine.
