They continually provide an exciting opportunity to listen to other professionals’ perspectives, expectations and experiences, even for seasoned members of the sector.

Marcelo Procopio, Commercial Director/CCO, Sepetiba Tecon

PFI conferences in Brazil have brought an international perspective to port logistics discussions and this is particularly important during these times where port law is going through major change in Brazil. The seminars also give foreign investors the chance to learn about the multiple opportunities that the country offers for investment in this sector. PFI and Container Handling Technology seminars offer a unique opportunity for the participants to learn about different technical aspects in connection with container handling, transmitting updated information on state of the art technology and equipment. I look forward to participating in future PFI events in Brazil, which have been a very rich experience so far.

Elias Gedeon, Director of Infrastructure Department of FIESP - The Federation of Industries of Sao Paulo and Member of the Infrastructure Committee of AEB - Brazilian Foreign Trade Association and CEO of Notre Dame Consultants & Logistics Inc.

It was a great pleasure for me to present our materials; everything I needed was taken care of. Patrick and his team organised a relaxed atmosphere for our potential customers with an excellent service. It is good to know that the professionals behind the scenes at PFI events take so much care to perfect the small details. I highly recommend Patrick and his team for their conference production skills.

The Container Handling Technology forum exceeded all my expectations by adding in highly qualified key executives from Brazilian ports, enabling a broad exchange of experiences, and addressing the views of the regulators, customers, suppliers and concessionaires. Certainly a must-go-to event for the region’s ports market.
