Changing Landscape of Latin America

Save the Date for the Changing Landscape of Latin America Conference this October!

October 2–3, 2017
Cartagena, Colombia

Registration opens June 28!

Expansion into Latin America is a focus of many businesses in many industries. However, growth opportunities must be balanced with political and economic changes in the region.

Join us in Cartagena, Colombia for the Changing Landscape of Latin America conference on October 2–3, 2017. We will focus on the vast economic, social, and political changes taking place throughout Latin America and their impact on intellectual property, including opportunities, pitfalls, protection, and enforcement strategies.

Balancing regulatory restrictions, technological advances, and political uncertainties is an everyday reality for both start-up and established companies doing business in Latin America. This two-day, advanced-level conference will feature business and legal experts, as well as government officials, to help attendees navigate investment, protection, enforcement, and growth opportunities in the region.

Registration for the meeting and online booking begins Wednesday, June 28, so be sure to check back then!
