Each year, AS/COA travels to key Latin American cities to host public conferences, and private, off-the-record meetings for AS/COA members. These programs engage high-level decision makers from the public and private sectors to provide a unique forum for tackling pressing national and regional issues.
Our conferences are open to the public and broadcast live online to a global audience. How many people watched us online: our Latin American Cities Conferences received a total of 88,687 views in 2019.
In conjunction with our conferences, we host private meetings and roundtables for AS/COA members with leading government officials and senior-level local and international business executives.
In recent years, AS/COA has visited Bogotá, Buenos Aires, Lima, Medellín, Mexico City, Monterrey, Panama City, Santiago, and São Paulo. As part of the series we also organized investor missions to Asunción and Montevideo.
In the face of the COVID-19 pandemic, Council of the Americas adapted its traditional one-day conference in the Brazilian capital into a high-level virtual mission, comprising eight private meetings with nine officials in Brasília.
