LIMRA/LOMA Latin America Conference Celebrates 40th Anniversary

WINDSOR, Conn., July 6, 2011―The 40th annual LIMRA/LOMA Latin American Conference will be held on Aug. 14-16 in Cancun, Mexico.

"We are excited to host this year's conference in Cancun to commemorate the 40th anniversary of this important event," said Bolivar Arosemena, corporate vice president of the Latin American and Caribbean Regions for LIMRA and LOMA. "It is the first time this event has been held in Latin America, allowing more in-region participation and underscoring the growing relevance of Latin America in the global market place."

The conference theme, 2020 Vision: Latin America, Land of Opportunities, focuses on recognizing and capitalizing on the untapped business opportunities within the Latin American markets. The conference provides the most up-to-date research and industry knowledge on market trends, consumer research and recent regulatory activity. During the conference, industry leaders and top practitioners will share best practices on product development, distribution, risk management and operations. It also offers attendees the chance to learn from industry experts, as well as from their colleagues in an open, collaborative forum.

In 1971, the Latin American Roundtable was held in Washington DC, attracting just 20 participants.  Forty years later, under the astute leadership of Mexican organizing committee co-chairmen Carlos Islas and Victor Manuel Alvarez, both of AXA Seguros SA de CV, the event is expected to draw more than 250 financial services professionals.
