||PennWell Corporation, a diversified global media and information company, officially opened PennWell do Brasil Holdings Ltda. in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil in April 2013. PennWell do Brasil, along with its three co-located gtd energy events, provide the Brazilian energy market with an integrated international platform, offering valuable opportunities for information exchange, networking and new business development across the market sectors.
Robert F. Biolchini, president and CEO of PennWell, said, “The opening of PennWell do Brasil Ltda. solidifies PennWell’s ongoing commitment to providing our Brazilian and Latin American customers with the highest level of quality in content, customer service and support in the markets we serve. This highly-anticipated launch is critical to the growth of our electric power conferences and exhibitions in Brazil, as well as positions PennWell to continue to build our offerings of innovative information resources to this dynamic and ever-evolving region of the world.”
“The launch of PennWell do Brasil in Rio de Janeiro signifies an important milestone in the continued growth of HydroVision Brasil, DistribuTECH Brasil and POWER-GEN Brasil. The momentum seen by these events thus far underscores the importance of such a platform to the industry and the acute international interest in the Brazilian market. Having a local Brazilian office will enable us to optimally support the energy industry in Brazil with local currency registration, logistical and invoicing capabilities. We look forward to the further development of these events with the local infrastructure that PennWell do Brasil provides,” said Mrs. Marla Barnes, Group Publisher of PennWell’s Hydro Group.
"With events located in many distinct global markets, PennWell understands that respecting and understanding the individual culture of each nation we are lucky enough to work in is critical. The establishment of PennWell Do Brasil is consistent with that ethos and will ensure that the company's offerings in Brasil and wider Latin America are closely attuned to the needs of the customers we wish to serve in these strategically vital markets,” said Mr. Glenn Ensor, Director of PennWell’s International Events.
