Since its inception in 2006, the Forum has rapidly grown to be one of the most noteworthy Latin American events in Europe. Last year’s event was a sell-out, attracting a record number of delegates, offering 350 people the opportunity to network around the discussion of “A Newfound Stability: the Latin America Approach”. Over the past six years, the Forum has attracted an outstanding line-up of speakers.

“As students at London Business School, we pride ourselves on our global reach,” said Andre Figueira from the Latin America Business Forum. “The forum is a perfect illustration of this, since the event attracts professionals who challenge the status-quo in their diverse fields throughout the region.”
