POSTPONED: 50th Washington Conference on the Americas

Council of the Americas

May 4 - 5, 2020


Out of necessity due to uncertainties surrounding the coronavirus, this event is postponed.

Connecting the Past, Renewing the Present, Shaping the Future:
The 50th Washington Conference on the Americas

We will be rescheduling the 50th Washington Conference on the Americas for later this calendar year. Please watch for those announcements. We look forward to having you with us during the new conference dates.

For those who have already registered, we will apply your registration fee to the new date, and there is nothing that you need to do at this time. If you prefer, however, we will provide a full refund of your registration fee at your request. Please email Stephanie Davis at with any questions or inquiries.

Since 1969, the Council of the Americas has hosted what has become Washington’s premier event on the Americas. Once again, we will convene the top U.S. administration officials and distinguished leaders from across the globe to discuss major policy issues shaping the region.
