One of the Cluster services and initiatives that has been more successful among Cluster companies is INTERNATIONAL PLATFORM: the online platform dedicated to all the companies that wanted to "test the ground" of foreign markets, in particular Singapore, China and Russia before to put in place structured export strategies and activities.

Thanks to the collaboration of local partners that work not only directly in the countries but that are involved in the furniture and building industry, member companies could receive weekly reports about updated market information and about interesting projects (hotel, restaurants, retail, etc.) from architectures, designers and contractors.

The Cluster project coordinators had the role to manage both the member companies and the external foreign partners from which informations arrived.

Thanks to this project Cluster had the opportunity to work with more that 30 companies within the region that have an important "international vocation" and are always looking for new opportunities outside national borders.
