Agnès Canonica will also spearhead meetings and live communications programs across various industries within the Latin American market.
“Strong operational capabilities in Latin America are essential to delivering integrated programs for our clients,” said Suzanne Wells Miell, president of the company’s events division. “Agnès brings this competence to EWI Worldwide, along with a real passion for the industry and education and an unparalleled work ethic.”
Fluent in three languages, Canonica has nearly 20 years of international expertise in strategic event, meeting and incentive planning, with firsthand experience and intricate knowledge of producing pharmaceutical events throughout Latin America.
