On March 12, Europe’s leading media companies and entertainment marketers from around the world will gather for PromaxBDA Europe 2018, a two-day summit at the Rome Cavalieri—a luxury resort perched atop Monte Mario, Italy’s highest hill.

The hotel offers stunning views, pristine pools, a full-service spa, and stellar conference rooms where entertainment professionals will share in learning, networking and a cross cultural exchange of ideas as they explore marketing strategies, insights, and innovations fueling success in an evolving entertainment industry.

The Rome Cavalieri also offers four on-site restaurants and bars, and is surrounded by enough dining options within walking distance and a short drive that will leave attendees hungry for more authentic local flavor.

So step outside, and get ready to mangia.
