2011 Conference is Held In-Region for the First Time

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: Getting to the Next Level, will provide sales, distribution, compliance, IT and operations leaders in the financial services industry the latest research and strategies on implementing social media and its impact on day-to-day, as well as long-term business success. During the conference, attendees will hear from industry leaders and social media experts about best practices and proven social media strategies that will drive business growth. The event offers its 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.
