The event exceeded my expectation, where I was able to maintain contact with representatives of various companies, institutions and investors. It allowed to expand the vision on infrastructure projects and future perspectives, and promoted productive discussions on various topics. The more informal format allows for greater interaction and everyone's participation to share visions, opinions, carefully crafted to be a powerful networking tool.
