26th Anniversary COA Symposium & BRAVO Business Awards
BRAVO celebrated 26 years of honoring leaders who drive change, social impact, and business success even as the world faces unprecedented challenges.
This year's Council of the Americas Symposium and BRAVO Business Awards celebrate 26 years of showcasing excellence and leadership, while bringing together the most forward-thinking leaders at a time when the business community is eager to engage in high-impact forums.
The daytime programming will feature two of our signature BRAVO Leadership Conversations: one-on-one, thought-provoking conversations with visionary leaders who continue to shape the business and policy landscape in the Americas and the world.
The awards will be presented at a formal and fully outdoor dinner at the terrace of the Perez Art Museum Miami (PAMM). The 2021 honorees, Chobani’s Hamdi Ulukaya, Medina Capital’s Manuel D. Medina and Grupo Bancolombia’s Juan Carlos Mora, each represent how true leadership and passion are the drivers of change, social impact, and business success, even as the world faces unprecedented challenges.
We cordially invite you to join us as we resume our long-standing tradition of showcasing excellence and leadership, where you will have the opportunity to engage and collaborate among a high-level community of leaders of multinationals and multilatinas across the Americas.
COA and the BRAVO Business Awards are committed to providing a safe and secure space by following health protocols, abiding by local regulations, and scaling the day's events size accordingly.
