This international forum was well attended by Austrian and Latin American companies, trade commissioners, commercial counsellors of Latin American embassies, enterpreneurs, representatives of the Interamerican Development Bank and other service providers. 

The forum covered economic developments, trends and business opportunities in Latin America.

The day’s first keynote speaker was the Argentinian CEO of the Telekom Austria Group, Alejandro Plater. Amongst the event’s speakers and panelists were all Austrian Trade Commissioners in Latin America, two Commercial Counsellors of Latin American Embassies, Latin American entrepreneurs and representatives of the Interamerican Development Bank.

For Guido Stock, Regional Manager for North and Latin America to the WKO, the event was a success: “With approx. 330 participants and more than 220 B2B meetings Latin America Day surpassed all expectations.”
