"I think of it as a forum and not a conference. The reason I say that is because it’s a very intimate group representing thought leaders in the space of transfer pricing, and it’s a free exchange of ideas. People have very different backgrounds so there’s a variety of perspectives; there’s government, private practioners, corporate...etc."Sam Maruca Senior Counsel Covington & Burling LLP United States
"The thing that distinguishes the Forum from other conferences is the formula. With relatively few participants it is possible to have a very interesting discussion. All can participate, contributing to the analysis on the topics covered."Gabriella Cappelleri Of Counsel Maisto e Associati Italy

Reputable practitioners coming from various sectors and practices are encouraged to comment on the selected subjects of interest. The subjects are carefully picked up taking into account relevance and interest countries."Raquel Novais Partner Machado Meyer Sendacz Opice LLP Brazil
