This years show has come a long way from the first edition, which took place in a small event space in Sao Paulo's Brooklin district, back in 2014.
Back then it was small booths, many of which were tabletop. Now exhibitors are spending top dollar on sophisticated stand where they intend to meet clients and forge new business.
