Partnership is established with the Lajos Law Firm, run by lawyer Levente Lajos. A good partner and true friend: clients received his complete support, and he shared the burden of numerous market challenges over the following years.
ITL Accounting is established, making what once was an outsourced activity into an integral part of the ITL Group. The company makes a considerable investment in IT to guarantee high-quality services.
The company keeps growing. The ITL Group HQ is refurbished and expanded to welcome new staff. The group expands its managerial services for its clients, becoming a veritable one-stop shop.

The ITL Group establishes Kopernikusz, a non-profit organisation dedicated to developing training programmes and managing European Union tenders. Itâ€™s run by Barbara Ă cs (in 2016, the organisation was annexed to the Group and renamed ITL EU Finance).
The ITL Group gains more experience and starts providing visual merchandising and training services to well-known Italian retail chains. This leads to further work with international large-scale retail groups.
ITL Marketing is established. The department provides communication, marketing, event planning, and market research services. Luigino Bottega heads the department, given his previous experience creating social communities and platforms in Italy.

We continue growingâ€Ś and the ITL Group moves its offices to the pedestrian zone of VĂĄci utca 81 in Budapest (current location). With the move, all departments are now under one roof. Moreover, the company rebrands and gradually increases its range of services.
Economia.hu is launched. The portal, written in Italian and curated by Claudia Leporatti, provides information on the Hungarian economy. The newspaper has become the most read publication on the economic exchanges between the two countries. It also hosts a database listing Italian investments in Hungary.
The ITL Group launches â€œBudapest Business Partyâ€?, a yearly event targeting the international business scene in Budapest. Its resounding success makes it a go-to event in the following years, with attendance constantly skyrocketing!
Together with DĂłra Szeles, an auditor who gained considerable experience at other international companies, ITL Audit is born. The department mainly implements audits and transfer pricing services.
ITL HR Solutions is born thanks to the appointment of Andrea Varga, followed by Judit Graczer. The department focuses on research, staffing selection and provision as well as other HR services. The client list soon grows to include renowned multinational companies.
