São Paulo, August 17, 2020: In response to the still rising numbers of cases of persons infected with the coronavirus (COVID-19) in Brazil and worldwide and the associated restrictions now being introduced, the organizers of The smarter E South America – Solar Promotion International GmbH (SPI), Freiburg Management and Marketing International GmbH (FMMI) and Aranda Eventos & Congressos Ltda. (ARANDA) – have decided to postpone the event, South America’s largest platform for the energy industry, which had been set to take place from November 16 to 18, 2020.
