With a primary goal of ensuring participants engage in new business and networking opportunities, ICCEA 2017 President, David Proenza comments, “The theme of the ICCEA 2017 is Using Science and the Market to Build a Successful CEA Business. The use of CEA in various forms is increasingly being adopted worldwide and if you want to build your knowledge or would like to target this market, ICCEA 2017 is the place to begin your valuable experience.”
