Internet Conference in Brazil

Last month, I had the honor to be invited to be one of the key note speakers at the ABRANET Internet conference in Brazil, clip_image002[6]amidst the discussion about the approval of the “Marco Civil” the Brazilian framework regulations for internet services in the country. I would like to share some of outcomes from that event.

Nearly 400 participants plus some 2.000 web-casters from all over the country had the opportunity to hear several experts and learn from industry leaders about the new trends and technologies available to power the future evolution of the INTERNET, as well as discuss the impact of the “Marco Civil” for the companies that provide internet services in Brazil. 

During the two days event, there were over 20 presentation in the main tent, while training sessions, technical meetings and business meetings were offered to the interested participants.  During the breaks, lunches and cocktails, the event offered endless opportunities for professional networking.
