Situated in Annecy, France, the annual event brings together over 5000 professionals from 80 countries.

She often lectures at the University of Savoie Mont Blanc (IAE Annecy-Chambéry) on the Masters in Cultural Events course and tutors economics, law, French literature and management.
Tiziana holds a Master’s Degree in Political Science from the Institute of Political Studies at Lyon and a Bachelors in Law from the University of Grenoble. She is fluent in English, French and Italian, with Spanish at professional level.
