In the words of Carlos Díez de la Lastra, CEO of Les Roches Marbella: “The highlight of this 2021 edition is the opening we have made with regard to the previous year. In the number of companies, countries and importance of the projects that have come to SUTUS. In 2019 we were pioneers in putting together the main companies in the sector, and I believe that in this edition we have managed to have represented from very ambitious, expensive and exclusive projects to more affordable projects that have a different sort of approach. This has happened in both the aerospace and underwater sectors.”
