President and CEO,
International Economic Forum of the Americas
On behalf of the entire International Economic Forum of the Americas team, I would like to extend my most sincere thanks to our over 1200 registered participants and 80 speakers who took part in the 2018 Conference of Paris. This 2nd edition of the Conference of Paris has once again provided a unique opportunity to share two days of rewarding insights and meetings with some of the most highly-qualified speakers of our time.
We are pleased to once again count on the exceptional support of the OECD, with whom we have an extremely positive collaboration. I would like to thank Mr. Gurría for this partnership and I also wish to thank the two Co-Chairs of the Conference of Paris: Gérard Mestrallet, Chairman, SUEZ and Honorary Chairman, ENGIE, and Paul Desmarais, Jr., Chairman and Co-CEO, Power Corporation of Canada, for their significant contribution to organizing this event. Finally, I extend my sincere thanks to all our speakers, partners and sponsors; we have been honoured by their presence here and by the trust they have placed in us.
We invite you to attend our upcoming events: the 12th edition of the Toronto Global Forum on December 10-12, 2018, the 9th edition of the World Strategic Forum in Miami on April 1-2, 2019, and the 25th Anniversary of the Conference of Montreal on June 10-13, 2019. Finally, the 3rd edition of the Conference of Paris will be held in Fall 2019.
We look forward to welcoming you again at these major events!
