For over ten years, the Latin American Business Associations (LABA) at NYU Stern and Columbia Business School have positioned their Latin American Business Conference as one of the most anticipated forums to discuss the pressing issues, challenges, and achievements of the region. 

For its 2017 edition, LABA organizations join forces with the Young Professionals of the Americas (YPA)—an initiative of the Americas Society/Council of the Americas—to organize the 2017 Latin American Business Conference on Friday, February 24.

Experts and rising game changers in public policy, tech, and social entrepreneurship will speak in a series of panels about the current reality of social change and business in the region.
