It's those who actually take the initiative and bring along real value to the community that is rewarded. We are very grateful for all the amazing guests, partners, and sponsors who helped us pull this summit together with trust, meaningful engagement, and ultimate support. A huge thank you to everyone who took part and made our first edition such a tremendous success! We have had a record turnout of more than 2,500 participants of the industrial, trade, finance, and banking sectors who contributed to a very fruitful day and an exceptionally vibrant floor!
