Ars Futura Cultura Sessions
The Ars Futura Cultura events aims to provide an additional possibility for award winners from different countries and disciplines to connect and network with each other. There will be a two sessions of Ars Futura Cultura events which aims to bring award winners together. The Ars Futura Cultura Events will be held at “Ristorante Pizzeria Funiculare” with excellent lake view as well as great gourmet food.

It is a very good idea to join the Ars Futura Cultura sessions, especially if you would stay 1 day longer for the Exhibition. The Gala-Night and Award Ceremony prepares a great basis for award winning designers to come together and celebrate, the Exhibition brings these wonderful people again together, but as you would all know, the very best connections and friendships are formed on a fine dinner table, and the Ars Futura Cultura meeting brings awarded designers, artists, architects and company representatives together in a super relax dining environment to help them establish long-term friendships and connections while enjoing their food and the "bella vista" of the Como Lake.

Detail of the Events in 2017 are as follows:


 

Post-Exhibition Dinner / Winners' Event with Pre-Registration

Post-Exhibition Dinner: June 10 at 19.45
Right after the busy Exhibition and the Gala-Night, the Ars Futura Cultura post-exhibition session is the perfect time to come together with other award winning designers, architects and brands, join this dinner to relax and enjoy a fine evening with other like-minded people. The A’ Design Award staff, as well as the award coordinator will be present during the event and will explain initiatives, as well as provide tips or answer to questions for PR and Publicity. The main focus of all the events will be about Prime Clubs, and how the winners could benefit from them and the secondary aim of the Ars Futura Cultura event is to help winners connect with each other, to create international, long-lasting bonds. The Ars Futura Cultura events will also bring board members of the Prime Clubs together. The award coordinator will also be present during this meeting. This is a highly appreciated event, those who joined last year were indeed quite happy for both the atmosphere and friendly environment. If you wish to join a single event, this is the event to join. Everyone will be present at this event. No formalities, no dress code, just cheers.

Each menu has been designed to provide a fine italian dining experience with a focus on local cousine and specialities. The award coordinator also promises to offer a good Italian wine to all platinum and gold award winners from his own expense.

This is more an insider meeting, it will be more causal than other meetings and the environment will be more direct and friendly. We will also take your feedbacks during this meeting to improve the A’ Design Awards. In the previous editions, we had several good ideas and initiatives that helped our award winners gain further publicity and visibility and we hope in this meeting we would also sparkle new ideas.

If you will stay longer we suggest you to join this event as well. No formalities, no dress code, just cheers.

VIP Lunch / Exclusive Event with Pre-Registration

VIP Lunch: June 12 at 13.30
This is designed for business minded individuals, like CEOs, company owners and designers and architects who run their own studios to meet and connect, it has a very high participation fee to ensure only those who value deeper networking possibilities join. For this particular meeting, the Presidents and Vice Presidents of the Prime Clubs (IAD, IDC, ICCI, IBSP, ISPM and AIBA) are invited and their bills covered by the award coordinator, while others must reserve a seat. The award coordinator will also be present during this meeting. A' Design Award and Competition reserve right to invite a few designers (such as past Designer of the Year winners) or those who we would consider strategically relevant (such as ambassadors, press members, head of design associations or other people who could create a value to all participants of the competition) free of charge to this meeting, invitations for such people have already been sent. The fee for this event has especially been set-up high so that we have less people in this meeting who could talk more freely and easily with each other. It is possible that majority of the participants on the table will indeed be invitees. The participant profile is neither guaranteed nor implied, remember to bring business cards as well as several small gifts from your culture to exchange during this meeting.

Pre-screening:
The VIP lunch could be relevant for those who have Enterprise, Government, Media or Agency account type, and we do not suggest it for other account types. Participation in this lunch is subject to a pre-screening. If you wish to come and book a space but your application is not accepted, your fees will be refunded.

Menu for VIP Lunch:
À la carte option where you can choose anything you wish from the Menu of the Restaurant and any extras are on us, it costs 1475 euro / person.

Space Availability:
15 people max, including the board members who confirm their participation in advance; we will have a single small table so that we could talk more intimately.

Location:
We have chosen a very good restaurant with both meat, fish and vegetable based options available, we will communicate its location to you after your booking is confirmed.

How to Register:
Space is extremely limited and pre-registration is absolutely required, we advise to preregister as early as possible. You cannot register during Gala-Night or Exhibition. To register, book a space from this page. Deadline for online registration is on April 15, we will not accept registration for this event during Gala-Night or Exhibition as we wish to prescreen the participants to this event. In case the space is fully booked, we will refund your booking order.


Which package do we suggest?
We sincerely suggest the "Full Networking Package" if you are at Como on April 20 since it allows you to connect the same people on many occassions, each time improving your familarity as well as friendship by providing you time and opportunity to talk, connect and share ideas. If you do not stay in Como after April 20, the Post-Exhibition Dinner is really a good single event of choice especially if you will stay for Exhibition Opening on April 19. If you stay in Como on April 20 but wish to travel during the day-time, then the Dinner Networking Package could be a viable alternative.
