Conversion Communications Presents Brazil Means Business Symposium on March 29, 2010 in Holland

A 360 View of an Emerging Economy

AMSTERDAM, THE NETHERLANDS--(Marketwire - March 1, 2010) -  The first edition of the Brazil Means Business Symposium, will take place March 29th 2010, in Holland. It will showcase some of the fastest growing Brazilian companies in the IT and Bio/Pharma sectors.

SOFTSUL, the Rio Grande do Sul state branch of Brazilian software association SOFTEX, is inviting entrepreneurs and companies to participate in the symposium that will cover all aspects of establishing successful foreign partnerships.

Brazil's software industry excels in three areas: banking, e-government, and healthcare. So it is no surprise that eighteen IT companies from the Southern region have confirmed presence in the upcoming CEBIT, in Hannover, the largest international fair for the IT sector. Another ten more are invited to be in Holland, on March 29th, to meet potential partners.

Jose Antonio Antonioni, Executive Director of SOFTSUL points out that: "One of the verticals SOFTSUL focuses on is entrepreneurship. We encourage firms to organize themselves in consortiums and joint-ventures. This symposium is aligned with our goals of promoting the Brazilian software industry abroad."

There is keen interest from European entrepreneurs to export goods and services to the huge consumers' market that Brazil represents. And there is interest, from Brazilian companies, in biomedical R&D carried on by European companies. Investors will also attend the Brazil Means Business Symposium to know about the latest opportunities in the sector and learn about Brazil's M&A landscape.

As the host of the World Cup in 2014, the Olympic Games in 2016, and with major investments being made in infrastructure by the government, Brazil presents a unique opportunity for foreign companies in the infrastructure, banking, biotechnology, and mobile technology sectors in the next decade. 

Attendance: 450 Euros
Early Registration: 360 Euros till March 1, 2010
