The Access Forum, which started in Chicago in 2017, is the only event that focuses on investment and business development between the U.S., Latin America, and other emerging markets.  The event will be returning to Chicago to promote cross-border relationships, deals, business development, partnerships and investment from the Midwest to the developing world. 

Attendees are U.S. private equity firms, family offices, companies and executives seeking international projects and opportunities alongside Latin American SMEs and institutions.  Full day attendees will walk away with tangible business or investment opportunities, new contacts, and education on development, opportunity, and investment between North and South America.



Global & North American companies, private equity firms, other investors, and institutions seeking to internationalize their investments, businesses or services.  


Latin American companies, project managers and institutions who are seeking support in the United States through investment, business development, co-ventures, and partnerships.


Service providers looking to expand the awareness of their firms and their clients to U.S. and Latin American companies who are scaling abroad: accounting and tax, law firms, consultants and more.
