PRESENTATIONS

Case studies, technical and scientific information, research findings, legislative information, and innovative projects are just some of the exciting subjects of the 200 presentations, which will be given in six rooms simultaneously.
The presentations will be grouped into thematic sessions under six key topics: innovation and clean technology; green and circular economy; energy transition; adapting to climate change; sustainable cities; as well as responsible investing and green taxation.

The program of Americana 2019 will be progressively revealed as of November 2018. To attend the presentations, you can purchase one of the packages — valid for one, two or three days — listed on our Registration page.
