You never want to lose a deal because you did not know the proper local etiquette! A panel of distinguished experts will share their experience on how to make the right impression, and avoid being seen as the “ugly American” when pursuing business opportunities in South America and the Caribbean. Lunch will be served. Registration fee $10.
