In 2012, the Summit will examine recent economic developments within the country, placing particular emphasis on technology and infrastructure as key areas of opportunity.
The Brazil Summit presentation comes on the heels of founder Marco Stefanini's prominent role in the US-Brazil CEO Forum at the White House with President Barack Obama and a meeting with German Chancellor Angela Merkel in conjunction with the 2012 CeBIT conference in that country.
