Var Group is a leader in the sector of digital services and solutions that, with a turnover of 702.6 million Euros as of 30 April 2023 and thanks to the professionalism of over 3700 people, accompanies companies on their path of digital evolution.

In line with the commitment that Var Group and the entire Sesa Group have undertaken with a view to sustainability, it has decided to make its Convention a carbon-neutral event.
The event “Shape the present. Build the future ”, held in October 2023 at the Palacongressi di Rimini, was attended by 1,700 people from all over Italy and abroad. The Var Group Convention is designed for all companies that want to shape their present to build a solid, sustainable and positive future for themselves and the communities in which they operate.

The event included Talks, in-depth sessions, Experience Valley and direct confrontation with the major international brands that have made digital evolution the core of their business: all this in “two days” that combined reflections on the present and future of companies, thanks to the live experimentation of new technologies and the futuristic contaminations brought into play by the Hackathon. Var Group took all participants through an immersive experience, coming into contact with the colours and shapes of technological innovation, together with national and international speakers, digital artists and revolutionary minds. Var Group has adopted a sustainable approach by actively promoting the principles it shares with companies.

‘The Var Group Convention is an appointment that allows us to take stock of the most pressing issues in the digital evolution. At a time when companies are pervasively impacted by the spread of technology, it is essential that in parallel they are also ready to adopt new organisational models as well as continue to have a positive impact on the world around them. The Convention was also an opportunity for us to confirm our deep commitment to sustainability with a strong focus on social and environmental impact, making it a carbon-neutral event.’
