Latin Americas Footprint in the United States

Miami - Jan 17, 2013

Much like the city itself, Miami's business community brings together many different countries from Latin America, across a range of industries and sectors. As a regional financial capital, and with its strategic location and status as a bilingual city, Miami has become home to the international offices of many of Latin America's largest corporations. How can companies in Latin America and the United States leverage Miami to push forward into new opportunities and markets?

Join a discussion with Chicago Booth alumni and industry professionals in Miami who will share their expertise and perspective on the current conditions as well as their views on the future outlook for Miami as Latin America's footprint in the United States.
