Planning Committee

2019

SAHIC South America’s Planning Committee has been carefully selected and is formed by experts in the field. As a particular feature, every year a new member joins the table, since we invite an authority from the government of the Host Country of each edition to be part of it.

The Planning Committee’s role is to collaborate in the design of the Conference Program and present the pertinent issues for the industry, as well as selecting the final projects to be presented at the “20/20 Showcase your Project” session, and also the final selection of the winners among the nominees for SAHIC Awards.
