"In 2016 - Chiara Moro, Convert Communication and Marketing Manager says- we have seen that the best business opportunities in the photovoltaic sector are concentrated in Latin American countries, where we have successfully participated in the installation of various plants. To further develop business relations and collaborations in the territory, we have considered participating in the cycle of events present at CIREC in Chile. We will continue our experience in Sao Paulo participating in BIREC of which, thanks to our presence in the country, Convert will be the Sponsor".
