Enic Meetings & Events

Enic Team in 1964 Condensing our history into a few lines is not easy.
Mainly because we have been around for over 50 years. We are PCO DMC Event Organizers and MICE Service Providers.
M.Cristina Dalla Villa founded the company in 1964, now her son, Stefano Gabbrielli is the owner and CEO. Our main office is in Florence, where it all began, but we have representations throughout Italy and in many European countries. Over the past years, we have tackled and resolved every possible problem that could arise before and during an event. Nothing takes us by surprise because we feel - and are - ready to deal with and fix everything.

Maria Cristina Dalla Villa

Maria Cristina Dalla Villa was born in Florence, where after graduating from classical high school, she earned a degree as a conference interpreter in English and Russian.

In 1962 she worked in Moscow for the first Italian industrial fair in what was then the Soviet Union. Her talent for organizing that developed from that experience led to the birth of ENIC as a company offering translating and congress services. Over the years, ENIC expanded its range of business to become a PCO DMC Event Organizer.

In 1975 Maria Cristina Dalla Villa was a founding member of ITALCONGRESSI, where she served a board member and vice president; in 1988 she was a founder and first president of PCO Italia, and also served a second term. Together with other local parties, she promoted and founded the Firenze Convention Bureau, that was established in 1995.

She is actively engaged in education, holding university-level seminars and teaching courses throughout Italy. In addition to her many articles in the trade press, with ETAS Libri, she published the book Il Congresso: dalla progettazione alla organizzazione, now in its third edition.

Maria Cristina Dalla Villa, as she prefers to be called, is still active at ENIC: she is in charge of training and human resources, represents the company at trade associations and is the official ENIC spokesperson.
