Latin American Investment summit

Monday 28 January, 2008

I attended the Latin American Investment Summit sponsored by Debbie Maue of Big Blue Marble Properties on 21 January, 2008 @ Sheraton Hotel in Chicago. It consisted of a number of presentations, mostly given by developers enticing people to buy residential properties in the countries of Costa Rica, Nicaragua, Panama, & Belize. There was also an exhibition area in the adjoining room. It appeared as if each of the exhibitors were allocated speaking slots. It appeared as if it was attended by a dozen or so real estate agents/brokers. The most valuable content I saw was a presentation given by Mitch Creekmore of Stewart Title  on “Title & Ownership in Latin America.” The former Panamanian Ambassador to the US, Juan Sosa, now of the US -Panama Business Council  also made a good presentation on Panama. Gloria Materre of Handler, Thayer, & Duggan law firm in Chicago  made a presentation on real estate law in Belize & wasn’t afraid to sling a few darts @ her fellow presenters, which added a little objectivity for comparison. Here is the link to Mitch Creekmore’s presentation:
