Focus on Executives / 19-20 October 2020 / Rhodes, Greece

The third edition of
ND Focus – Elia's networking days for Executives

3-4 May 2018 / Catania, Sicily

Focus on Executives POSTPONED

Dear Colleague,

With the rapid expansion of the number and geographic distribution of people with the COVID-19 virus and the containment strategies being employed, we have decided it is in the best interest of all to postpone Elia’s Focus on Executives 2020.  The new date will be 19-20 October 2020 and the venue remains the Elysium Resort & Spa in Rhodes, Greece. 

All who have registered for the May dates have the choice to utilise their current registration for the rescheduled event in October or receive a refund.

We are very sorry for the change. However, after watching the explosion of cases globally, it is clear that the areas previously thought “safe” can very quickly become hotspots and it would be unconscionable for Elia to bring people together at this time.

If you have any questions, please contact our Event Manager, Dimitra Garantzioti.

We genuinely hope to see you in October in Rhodes.

Wishing you the best,

John Terninko

Elia Managing Director

This is what CEOs have said about the previous edition of the event

ND Focus – Elia’s networking days for Executives has the right size, has the right mix of attendees, and all the networking opportunities of other conferences to share experiences and knowledge with people who on the whole have the same goal as me, I really enjoyed it.

De Giacomi Leonardo
CEO • DG Translations LLC

I have been in sales whole of my life and still attended the customer acquisition and growth strategies track. I’ve loved every second of it because we worked in groups and analysed different aspects of sales and marketing. I brought home a lot of knowledge and motivation for the days to come. Priceless knowledge and networking of beautiful people is what you’ll get at these events.

Gregor Rosulnik

I participated twice already, both in Catania in 2018 and in Dubrovnik in 2019
The events were well planned, great people and fantastic content.
I learnt a lot and had a super team of professionals to consult with. We all share the same issues, problems, challenges and the brainstorming was great. The event is not too large such as other language industry events, so there is plenty of room to build personal relationships.In addition I had real opportunities to do business. I highly recommend.
