Description

This is an unprecedented event in the north of the UK which aims to establish an annual tradition at the University of Edinburgh. The focus of this first edition is to raise awareness about business opportunities in Latin America and share the experience of global companies operating there as well as of Latin American companies doing business internationally; placing particular emphasis on the shift to a more sophisticated and versatile economy that has taken place in recent years.

The programme will feature a dynamic set of panel discussions, case studies and keynote speeches ranging from sustainability and climate change to innovation and entrepreneurship, bringing together over 10 high profile speakers from prestigious institutions such as the ILO, ProChile, CAIC and the OECD.

Delegate Rates: £5 for UoE students, £20 for University Staff and £30 for Executives.
