This year we would like to consolidate recognition of the summit as a leading international event, where entrepreneurs and investors meet and relationships are established. We are placing significant emphasis on involving the leading innovation centers and venture capital from around the world. We look forward to working with you to create an experience that is rewarding for you and all those that will gather with us in Barcelona this June.
First inaugural edition was a great success and accordingly this yearâ€™s event has been expanded. We will continue the Global Entrepreneurship Competition, with certain enhancements, and will be adding a Growth Company Showcase, with three industry concentrations: IT/Media, Health Care and Green Tech. It will be a wonderful celebration of entrepreneurship and innovation.
