Originally conceived of as a synagogue, it now houses the Museo Nazionale del Cinema, and is the tallest museum in the world.

Are congresses useful as far as conferences and meetings with professionals are concerned? Do you feel you learned useful things and spent your time in a good way?
Of course. Especially if the presenters are good and experienced in things they are talking about. I found out many interesting projects and got some meetings with creative people, who helped me with developing some ideas of mine.

A congress also offers the opportunity to visit new cities, meet new people, and partying. What is/are your happiest memory/ies about that?
Romanian Congress. It took place in a very interesting city…With looooots of dogs. I adore multi cultural atmosphere and hanging with people from all over the world. This is the nicest memory that I have from the congress. :)

Have you ever organized a PRime Congress? which were the greatest satisfactions and the biggest difficulties?
After Romania, Croatian team was also inspired and wanted to organize something similar. But, in the end there was not enough time and energy, I suppose. It looks easier than it is! So, respect for everyone who is trying!

How would you define a congress in 3 words?
Experience, people, memories

The oddest thing you remember about a congress…
Again, those dogs in Romania… :)

My first PRime Congress =D

Social Noi Per Torino

di

When i leaved I didn’t know what has happening….I took my best friend and I said to her: “Cool! Let’s go to Portugal!”. On November, after the 2008 Turin congress, we started to took part at the weekly meeting every Tuesday night, and we found a big family where learning every kind of communication, without shame and with a lot of enthusiasm. After few events located in Turin, the most important metting was coming. We got registration and booking the plane…Let’s leave…Go!

2009 March…I’m sure I’ll never forget it. At the airport arrival they come to pick up us and we accomodate in a really cute hostel by the sea. The first day it’s an arrival day…so we get dressed the swimsuit and I did my first swim into the ocean. Indescribable, beautiful and freezing!!!

The real congress starts by the night. 5 days of full immersion into conferences, tours, parties. 5 days of meeting, friendship…and some lovestory too! You  wonder how I get with my english…It’s like how you’ll make if you’ll take part to the next congress in Turin, on 2012 (April, 16th – 21st). There’s no secret about it…throw yourself into an adventure and let’s discover PRime!

The most nice reminds has been the Lisbon Oceanario, the beautiful night parties into the Docs, the national act by night on the beach, the playgrounds around the city, Cascais and Its very good candies, the unexpected presents from my secret friend…..For sure i can’t forget as worst days the neverending walks that maked my feet big as bagpipes! Remind: on Lisbon, just take sneakers with you !

What’s more about a congress? I started to write this post saying to me: shortly and incisive. But i know It’s not possible spend just few words about a week of meeting and adventures, nice and bad moments that they’ll make you grow, teaching you how to involve yourself, discover new cultures, becaming more open mindly.

They’re almost 4 years I’m a PRime member, and on Tuesday night It’s just the same love of always. Between discussions and laughs I wanna thank my friends that took me by hand in this journey, who teached me al lot and who came lastly between us for the next congress organization.

It will be a new emotion for everyone. A new way to grow up and having fun!

Welcome to Turin!

All we need a spring in Bucharest

Social Noi Per Torino

di

I joined PRime just after the Autumn Congress in Lubijana. As the memory of this experience was still fresh in many members of PRime, during the weekly meetings many of them refered more or less amusing episodes occurred on that occasion.
That congress was exciting, educational and funny and the members looked foward to the next congress, the Sping ones in Bucharest.
I was intrigued by all this enthusiasm, because I had not fully understood how important it was for life associative to participate to international conferences.
When it was time to rigister for the new congress, I did it.
I wanted to understand, I wanted to know, I wanted to visit a new place.
It was one of the best choices I could do! I lived a unique and unforgettable experience, with people who started the travel with me as strange and have returned as friends.
It was a journey characterized of internationality, training, entertainment, discovery, integration and sharing.
I got to know a nation which, perhaps, I never visited had it not been for Prime. I spent six days in a particular city, a city “shapechanging”, where every time you turn the corner you never know what you will be presented. A city born from the meeting of different cultures. A city in progress.
Someone might ask me what I didn’t like about this congress?
Well, I’m sorry, but one would be: the soap  I really didn’t like it!

Let’s go beyond national borders!

Roberto "Gnappo" Mazzi

di

Are congresses useful as far as conferences and meetings with professionals are concerned? Do you feel you learned useful things and spent your time in a good way?

Sure, I think Prime Congress are useful to professional and individual growth. University gave me a general background, PRime opens my horizons beyond national borders, so it’s really good spent time.

A congress also offers the opportunity to visit new cities, meet new people, and partying. What is/are your happiest memory/ies about that?

Yes, I completely agree. Visiting new Country and meeting new cultures and new people is a great opportunity, particularly at low cost.
I attended three PRime Congress abroad, for each of them I have great memories. I can tell you about the “pasteis de belem” and the bathing in the Ocean in Lisbon, about “sarmale” and the big, big Bucharest, about the trip in Transylvania and in Brazov, and about the beautiful and smart Ljubljana. And then of course the night parties: karaoke parties, disco parties, fancy dress parties and farewell parties, amazing.

Have you ever organized a PRime Congress? which were the greatest satisfactions and the biggest difficulties?

Yes, I was in the organizing team Congress in Turin 2008. Well, the greatest satisfactions are the satisfaction and the fun of the participants. The Biggest difficulty? Working during the morning, help the organizing team in the afternoon and survive at the parties in the night :)

How would you define a congress in 3 words?
More than words :p

The oddest thing you remember about a congress…
I don’t know, maybe the people jogging at night in Lisbon, maybe the largest holes I’ve ever seen in the road in Bucharest, but no one has yet discovered who stuck the stickers and leave flowers on my car in Ljubljana.

Congress? “Learning by doing”.

Ilaria MasengaName: Ilaria
Job: PhD Candidate and Teaching Assistant (University of Exeter, UK)
Nationality: Italian

Are congresses useful as far as conferences and meetings with professionals are concerned? Do you feel you learned useful things and spent your time in a good way?

I personally find congresses very useful as a way of ‘learning by doing’. This is particularly true when professionals are involved, as they bring their expertise and definitely make the difference in terms of skills and information acquired. Networking is also a fundamental feature of a congress: it is rather impossible not to make new friends and possibly establish fruitful collaborations.
A congress also offers the opportunity to visit new cities, meet new people, and partying.

What is/are your happiest memory/ies about that?

Parties and dinners together are definitely my happiest memories of the PRime Congress in Turin: since I was part of the organizing team, I remember them as a time in which finally relax and enjoy the ‘congress atmosphere’.

Have you ever organized a PRime Congress? Which were the greatest satisfactions and the biggest difficulties?

Yes, I co-organized the PRime Congress in Turin in 2008. Honestly, when we started planning the event everything seemed quite impossible to me: finding sponsors; organizing the conferences and the parties; sticking to a budget… But in the end, everything worked out exceptionally well and I would say that this is because we worked together as a team, sharing both difficulties and success.

How would you define a congress in 3 words?

Mhhhh…  GREAT FUN, NEW FRIENDS, and NETWORKING.

The oddest thing you remember about a congress…

I can’t remember any odd moment… Is it because everything was just perfect or is it me getting older? :)

from Barcelona to Turin….on April PRime meets in Italy

Social Noi Per Torino

di

When you arrive into a strange land, you bring with yourself, together with the baggages, lots of curiosity and expectations. We guys from PRime Italy carried on our shoulders this and more at the arrival time in Barcelona on the Autumn the 2010. The friends of PRime Spain accepted us and the other delegations in an old friend way, ’cause that’s the real spirit of PRime. The five spanish days has been funny, constructive, but mostly, days where people of different cultures were compared and shared experiences. Every PRime congress has a principle theme, developed during all the congress time. The theme of the spanish one was the music, seen and discussed under all the possible point s of view. That work involved us in many situations, through guided tours, like the very interesting one at the Barcelona Opera, or into the universities, or during the party nights into the clubs, maded of pure and healthy enjoyment. But the meeting is also a chance to visit beautiful cities as Barcelona, Lisbona….and Turin in the next case.  Making activities as a united team, able to do it with fun, is the primary goal of all of us. Just for that, things like the National act or the Secret friend play leaves always the sign. A PRime congress is first of all a great training, where we PRime guys try to establish closer contacts between us, because lot’s of miles separate us. The intensity of this experience is guaranteed (together with few and few hours for sleeping!), but what is realimportant is that every meeting always leaved something special inside everyone of us, and with the next Italian congress, together with your participation, we’re sure that the successes list will keep going straight on for a long long time. We’re waiting for you folks!!!

A Congress’ meeting can make the difference for your future!

Are congresses useful as far as conferences and meetings with professionals are concerned? Do you feel you learned useful things and spent your time in a good way?
Congresses and meetings with professionals are very useful. Public relation is a job where the contact is really important, where every piece of information you gather in the field, any previous experience of a PR professional can make the difference at some point.
After every session I had at our PRIME congresses, after every meeting, I found several interesting and useful aspects I can learn from.

A congress also offers the opportunity to visit new cities, meet new people, and partying. What is/are your happiest memory/ies about that?
Just what you said. Visiting a new city, meeting new people, partying and bonding with the people I just met. My happiest moments are mostly related to the national acts and to the meals I had together with other people.
Just talking to someone that has a different cultural background is an amazing experience.

Have you ever organized a PRime Congress? Which were the greatest satisfactions and the biggest difficulties?
I have organized several PRIME events, but not an European Congress. Generally speaking, the best satisfaction is the part when all ends and you realize that your work paid off, that everything turned out to be just fine. The biggest difficulty is working with the team, making sure that everybody is involved and they do their job in the right way.

How would you define a congress in 3 words?
If I may, I would like to be a little bit more specific, and use 3 phrases
Amazing cultural experience
Interesting people
Successful parties

The oddest thing you remember about a congress…
Eating an octopus for dinner in the congress in Lisbon. Romania is definitely not the country of sea food….so eating an octopus was odd and interesting at the same time.

We’re organizing a game around the city, so you could know and admire the best places here…and in the meantime you could have an amusing time too!! It’s a game whose solution will be in the contribution of all the participants at the PRime Congress… just to create a network ;) !

But the game starts now: yes just in this moment! Below there’s a picture… the model is Giorgia ;) she’s hanging a piece of the logo of the Congress… in the logo there’s a piece of a sentence…the sentence will be the first hint for the game!

Now, every week (missing 7 weeks at the Congress!) we’ll put a picture with another Italian PRimer of the Organinzing Team hanging another piece of the logo-puzzle: you have to write down all the pieces of the sentence week afterweek. Finally you’ll have the hint, necessary to start the game!! The people who’ll know which is the first stage of the game, will start the game with an advantage on the other participants!!

So write down now the first piece of the hint:

Once upon a time in Torino (Congress)

Social Noi Per Torino

di

Not easy at all to write about being in a PRime Congress as organizer. Because of those mixed sensations and memories, some funny some grave, you don’t know if it really happened or not.
It really wasn’t something that we said we would do in a day, but after other experiences as participant, Luca decided to convince us that organizing a congress would be a fantastic experience for all of us.
Preparing it lasted 11 months since when the last day before the beginning arrived we were some way relaxed because everything was perfectly planned and structured and we just had to wait for the people to come.
Many memories, many faces and smiles to tell about. All compressed in 5 days of conferences, walks, parties and… just a few hours of sleep. Less then in the other congresses, of course.
The theme we chose for the congress was on relationship between Design and Communication in Urban style, Products, Cars and Food. That was, in some way, the best theme we could work on in that year because Torino was nominated World Design Capital for 2008.
Lectures were so interesting and speakers very prepared and professional (of course they were… we chose them!). All of them coming from the most important companies or institution of Torino: like the Design Capital commettee, Motorola, FIAT Styling Center, Istituto Europeo di Design, Peyrano Chocolates: all important brands in their own category. FIAT also financed the wednesday Murder Party. It was our idea to make the participants walk around the city center during the evening to appreciate Torino from a different point of view, while playing this funny game. And Somewhere Tours company organized this wonderful moment with actors and special games, with a final party in one of the coolest disco of the city.
Thursday was an all-day-run for me: I didn’t visit the Reggia di Venaria with the group because I was finishing some late work and then went to fencing academy to prepare the arrival of the congressists for lunch and for fencing exihibition with friends “Peyo” and Umberto. Best moment was when we proposed all participants to try and did some kind of initiation to fencing to all of them: funny moments for everybody.
Then after a quick shower I joined the group in Pessione for Martini factory visit and final aperitif with company special drinks and cocktails.
Final day came very quickly to evening, after lecture on food design and communication in the Eataly food store surrounded by all the best food specialities of the country, and we were preparing for Farewell party. That was really great and even if we knew that it was the end of a fantastic week we had a lot of fun to 5 or 6 in the morning, dancing, drinking and jumping around. At the end of the party, tired and a bit drunk, I also had to answer Ana’s questions which was recording an interview for her radio: it was so complicated to speak good english in that mental condition!
After that I only slept 50 minutes before leaving to Caselle Airport and take there the first people which left Torino. That was the beginning of the saddest day of the congress. When all participants leave and you have to say goodbye to all of them.
But all this sadness has been erased by the smiles and tears of all the participants that used to thank us for all we did and we finally undestood that those 11 months of preparation, lots of days of hard work and ideas were definitively, were meant to reach us to those fantastic sensations and intense emotions that we all still have in our hearts after an amazing adventure.

Have you ever seen Turin? Or better… do you know something about this beautiful Italian city?
Maybe not, ‘cause, unfortunately, Turin is not the capital Rome or the fashionable Milan. But also Turin had its glorious moment: for example in the 2006 our city was the site of the Winter Olympic Games!!
Look at these pictures…

Everybody here was enthusiastic!!
One of the place in Turin protagonist of that incredible experience was Lingotto: it is a district in Via Nizza, which once was a huge automobile factory, constructed by Fiat. During the Olympic Games, Lingotto had a great role! Also the Olympic Footbridge was built here…
And guess what?? Your residence for the PRime Congress is at Lingotto, just above the 8 Gallery (a big shopping center ;) )!!

So… what are you waiting for?? Join us in Turin and participate at ‘Together to get it’!!!!

Nationality:  Slovenian

Are congresses useful as far as conferences and meetings with professionals are concerned? Do you feel you learned useful things and spent your time in a good way?
I am absolutely sure that PRime congresses are useful for students of communication and PR. Especially because you can get a detailed insight into foreign markets and their specifics. Additionally, you learn about specific strategies to reach various publics and get the message, which can be different as usual, across. That is why I feel that participating in a PRime congress is time and money well spent.

A congress also offers the opportunity to visit new cities, meet new people, and partying. What is/are your happiest memory/ies about that?
Since I attended a congress in Romania, where I hadn’t been before, it was a very interesting experience for me. I got to know Bucharest and Brasov and also the famous Transylvania. I also met a lot of interesting and fun people from Romania and other European countries and had a great time with them at the parties and also during the day. Not the happiest, but definitely the most memorable thing was a party with a very special kind of entertainment, but let us keep it a secret.

Have you ever organized a PRime Congress? which were the greatest satisfactions and the biggest difficulties?
Yes, I was part of the organizing team for PR beat in 2009 in Ljubljana. It was an interesting experience and I can say I learned quite a lot. The biggest difficulty was setting up the program, since we had to make it interesting, new and coordinate it with different lecturers. The greatest satisfaction was the congress itself and that the participants were satisfied with it.

How would you define a congress in 3 words?
Knowledge, networking and fun.

The oddest thing you remember about a congress…
I can’t really say there was something odd, because all in all both congresses I attended (in Ljubljana and in Romania) were very exciting, fun, insightful and had a great group of participants.
