PRLog - Jan. 25, 2012 - NEW YORK -- NEW YORK -- Nearshore Nexus, the only North America investor conference focused entirely on the Caribbean and Latin America IT and BPO sector, will take place on Thursday April 19, 2012, in New York City.
Nearshore Nexus will feature the best minds in global services to examine the growing role Latin America is playing in delivering quality outsourcing services to businesses across the Americas. The outsourcing sector in Latin America has been growing at over 20 percent per year – noticeably higher than the global average. The theme for the 2012 edition of Nexus is: “Intelligent Analysis of Outsourcing in the Americas.”
“I’m very proud of the fact that we will attract delegates and sponsors from over 15 countries in Latin America. This testifies to the strength of our business and the appeal of this topic,” said Kirk Laughlin, CEO and Founder of Nearshore Americas, the company staging the conference. The event brings together CIOs and IT leaders, global sourcing decision makers, procurement heads and country representatives. Besides analyzing complex ideas and generating stimulating debate, Nexus is also a place to enjoy something different. Musical entertainment will be provided during the event, and multiple networking opportunities are built in.
"The Nearshore outsourcing market is extremely robust,” noted Laughlin, “yet a good percentage of U.S. buy-side sourcing customers continue to lack sufficient knowledge of Latin America to make good business decisions. Our conference is all about accelerating that awareness and generating high-value connections.”
Nearshore Nexus features a list of top tier speakers from organizations such as GE, The McGraw-Hill Companies, Pace Harmon, Pegasus Solutions, UBS, HfS Research, Tata Consultancy Services, Ci&T and A.T. Kearney. Topics range from the current state of outsourcing in Latin America, getting smart about site selection, and how to manage vendors in a multi-vendor, multi-location environment.
Sponsors include Tata Consultancy Services (Diamond); Ci&T (Platinum); BRASSCOM, MexicoIT and Pro Mexico (Gold); Belatrix Software Factory, Common Sense, Invest Pacific, Nearshore Call Center Services, Neoris, ProBarranquilla, VSI Nearshore Outsourcing and Wipro (Premier). Partners include Avasant (Advisory Partner) and HfS Research (Research Partner).
This year’s conference will be held at the elegant Crowne Plaza Times Square Manhattan, which offers a luxurious oasis in the middle of Manhattan’s most vibrant and iconic neighborhood. Nearshore Nexus has secured a special room rate for attendees of $309 per night. This rate expires on March 16, 2012.
