It is with great pleasure and excitement that we provide information for The Seventh International Cane Collector’s Conference
Milano Italy May 26 thru 30, 2010

The Conference Committee wishes to thank both participants and sponsors for the tremendous success of the 6th International Cane Collectors Conference in Paris, France. The Conference was the largest gathering of antique cane enthusiasts of the six international conferences!

All of the events from the Grand Opening of the Exhibition with the Conference Committee hosting the Cocktail Party, to Friday’s Cane Conference thru Saturday evening’s Grand Gala was memorable, enjoyable and educational. It was delightful to share in the events with so many friends and have the opportunity to meet other Cane Enthusiasts.
