CURITIBA, BRAZIL, September 14, 2020 – The Latin America Summit, the annual event organized by payments company EBANX that promotes a deep dive into the business landscape in Latin America, this year will be fully online, live show format, and divided in two chapters, taking place on September 17 and on October 15. This fourth edition will foster discussions about the digital revolution that is arising in Latin America, and the expressive growth of the digital commerce markets in the region.
Global digital companies and financial authorities will gather on the summit’s online stage to talk about business, new opportunities, new payments and new connections that are emerging in Latin America. Amazon, Microsoft, Spotify, and Uber will be some of the global brands talking about their success experiences. The Central Bank of Brazil will talk about PIX and the payments transformation in the country. Other keynotes will be from Americas Market Intelligence (AMI), and experts from EBANX.
“The pandemic fast-forwarded an intense digitization process in Latin America. How it happened is no reason for celebration, but it is helping to shape new consumer behaviors and to open up new markets, which will outlast the pandemic,” said João Del Valle, co-founder and COO of EBANX. “The main goal of the Latin America Summit this year is to dive into all these new aspects. And we are really proud to have all these entities and global brands by our side at the event, who got closer to their Latin American consumers and are thriving in the region,” he completed.
