“We are almost there!”- added Renaudin after announcing that “39 renowned speakers from 17 different countries have already confirmed their intervention in an event that cannot be missed”. He called for stakeholders from around the world to participate in Leon because “we All have something to say, something to share, something to contribute with…” Plasencia underlined such message by indicating that the Congress represented a unique opportunity for interchanging ideas and knowledge, and for facilitating the dialogue leading to future business alliances between major worldwide stakeholders. “All this is relevant in this changing economy if we want to reach a sustainable growth of the sector with no boundaries”, added Plasencia.
