Event description

About this Event

The Puerto Rico ICON is a different kind of investors conference… First, it’s a business, finance and thought leadership forum showcasing Puerto Rico’s unique tax incentives, competitive advantages and investment opportunities. But It’s also a platform to promote business collaboration and economic transformation within Latin America and beyond. Our goal is to connect capital with development opportunities in the private and public sectors. Our platform will bring together key industry stakeholders, creating a powerful economic driver for Puerto Rico’s transformation, and fostering collaboration in the LATAM region.

For your convenience, we recommend reserving your stay at La Concha Resort: contact internal reservations directly through email reservations@laconcharesort.com.

We hope you will join us at the Puerto Rico ICON!
