Paulo Sotero moderates discussion on "The Brazil-US Biofuels Agreement: How to Move Forward" at Ethanol Summit 2009 in São Paulo
June 1-3, 2009, São Paulo, Brazil
Held for the first time in 2007, the Ethanol Summit was conceived as a platform for in-depth discussions on the present and future of biofuels in Brazil and the world, with special focus on the most widely used biofuel of all, both globally and in Brazil: ethanol. The event returns to the Sheraton World Trade Center Hotel in São Paulo, once again featuring specialists, researchers, leading business executives and government officials from around the world in plenary sessions and panel discussions, designed to contribute constructively to the debate on biofuels that is so dominant on the global energy agenda.
Among new features in this year's event is a Special Plenary Session produced and moderated by The Economist Group, publishers of The Economist magazine. It will be the first time The Economist Group produces a segment within an event other than one of its own. Simultaneous to the Ethanol Summit, a trade fair dedicated to the latest technology for the biofuels industry will be held in the same venue, one level away. All 2009 Summit participants will have free access to the Brazil Ethanol Trade Show, to be held in one of Latin America's most unique convention facilities, the WTC's Golden Hall.
