LeWeb’s development has been incredible since 2005 and we needed a partner such as Reed Midem to make it even more successful. We are very excited to benefit from Reed Midem’s unique expertise in the event industry and are looking forward to working closely with their team to provide even better experiences to our participants and partners.”
