This festive night was capped off with lively music and the guests danced the night away. Truly, L'Aperitivo Italiano is more than just networking.

This is more than socializing and meeting friends. This is a true taste of Italy and everyone can feel the difference as it touches all senses. We are also very grateful to have the support of companies like Qatar Airways, Seda Hotels, Mighty Corporation, Dusit Thani Manila, and BDO as we value loyalty and these business partnerships that bring mutual benefit.”
