On 19-21 July 2023, MGI Latin America held its annual conference in Cancun, Mexico. Over 50 members gathered from across the region for two days of learning, networking, and having fun with friends and colleagues.

An evening of mariachis and margaritas kicked off the event in true Mexican style. The strong bonds of friendship and collaborative spirit among the attendees was evident from the start.

Our excellent hosts, the team of Alberto Rocabert & Co., took care of every detail making for an enjoyable meeting for all delegates and their companions, creating a truly memorable experience on the Riviera Maya.

The diverse agenda addressed various topics of interest to Latin American firms, from services and business opportunities, to technical issues and more strategic matters. How to become a trusted consultant, the use of Artificial Intelligence in accounting firms, and good Human Resources management were some of the presentations - in addition to a special focus on marketing and branding issues with the hope of continuing to strengthen the MGI Worldwide brand across the region.

Women Who Lead in Latin America

During the conference, MGI Latin America wanted to take the opportunity to bring together the women present. The aim of the gathering was to rethink and relaunch the Women Who Lead initiative in Latin America and to promote regional actions, in Spanish, adapted to the reality and concerns of local firms.

Latin America has more women members than any other region in the world and a large group of women leaders who we hope will add value to this initiative.

Recognition of our members' achievements

MGI Latin America took advantage of the occassion to mark recognise milestone anniversaries being celebrated by some of its firms. Cuauhtémoc Contreras and Juan Carlos Guerra, representatives of Latin America on the IC (International Committee), hosted the ceremony.

Time for entertainment and relaxation

A very Mexican welcome cocktail was held above the beach on the first night. Delegates were treated to an evening of margaritas and mariachis - and there was no shortage of brave delegates to join them in song!

Rain meant that the last's night's gala dinner had to be brought indoors, but this did not detract from the fun had by all. Delegates enjoyed a show of music, lights, and water drums - and everyone took part!
