Latin American Forum

Sustainable business practice is the theme of this year’s Latin American Forum.

The Forum brings together 12 speakers from around the world in a series of sessions focusing on the issues facing business enterprise in Latin America.

Building on the success of previous years, the Forum has become a valuable platform that invites experts from a wide range of sectors and academic disciplines to discuss and evaluate the issues facing Latin America and its growing presence in the world.


The event brings together people from different backgrounds and areas of expertise in order to generate ideas and dialogue to promote and explore business opportunities in Latin America.
