According to Pedroso, expectations after the event are for the Brazilian Association of Event Companies and the Argentine Association of Organizers and Promoters of Exhibitions and Events to sign an agreement for technical cooperation to promote the exchange of specific information in the sectors they operate.

"The Associations plan to elaborate a joint work plan. This will be an important step for Latin America to be integrated and to occupy more space on the global scenery," stated the director.
