Third Billionaires of the Americas Summit

Unlike traditional Summits this didn't offer the excitment of the demonstrations.

If you think that Anti-Summits are the last thing, you need to know that a group of Latin American magnates are taking the summit concept to a new level, with the introduction of a Billionaires of the Americas Summit.

Invitations for this event are exclusively extended to top regional moguls and their families. The summit includes guest speakers, roundtables and plenty of social activities.

The third edition just took place at the Alvear Palace Hotel in Buenos Aires. Former Spanish President Felipe Gonzalez was a guest speaker. Carlos Slim, Alejandro Bulgheroni and Jorge Gerdau entertained an audience of 200 with speeches on the private industry role. As expected they criticized the public sector and lambasted the evil of populism.

The summit’s first edition was hosted by Carlos Slim in Mexico City in 2003.
