Nexus continues to gain recognition as the one and only premiere conference for the fast-growing business services’ offshore markets of Latin America and the Caribbean.

Guilford, Connecticut (PRWEB) March 21, 2014

Nearshore Americas, organizers of Nexus 2014, are pleased to announce the inclusion of several luminary IT and business corporate executives who will participate in the fourth annual conference, schedule for April 8th, 2014 at the Jersey City Hyatt, Jersey City, New Jersey. Among the new speakers are Toby Redshaw, former Global Chief Information Officer for American Express; Robin Shahani, Chief Procurement Officer at TD Ameritrade and Fabrizio Opertti, Chief of Trade and Investment at the Inter-American Development Bank.

“Nexus continues to gain recognition as the one and only premiere conference for the fast-growing business services’ offshore markets of Latin America and the Caribbean,” said Kirk Laughlin, Managing Director of Nearshore Americas. “With over 12 countries represented and more than 200 senior corporate execs in attendance, we truly believe our ‘Americas-centric’ content and networking formula is engaging the right people discussing the right topics.”

In addition to adding new speakers, Nexus 2014 also recently updated its agenda. Special features include:

● Foreign Policy magazine has called him a top “Global Thinker” and Time Magazine listed him last year as one of the top 40 most influential executives in technology. That person is Vivek Wadhwa, whose combination of engineering prowess, passion for entrepreneurism that can be unleashed through smarter U.S. immigration policies and periodic roles in inspiring startups in
Latin America makes him a perfect choice as VIP Keynote to start Nexus 2014.

● Merger and Acquisitions: As an emerging market region, Latin America stands poised to reap the rewards of consolidation and expansion; both as a target and driver of M&A activity. In one of our panel discussions, we’ll learn about the specific factors that are likely to spur more activity in Latin America M&A in the very near future.

● Geopolitical Upheavals and Risk: A “Super Panel” of CXOs will tackle key questions about outsourcing risk, and of course, stealing directly from today’s headlines – pursue discussion on how instability in the Ukraine impacts the global sourcing outlook.

● Strategic Partners: Is your outsourcing need focused on agile software, customer care, or payroll services? Are you planning due diligence activities in Mexico, Brazil, Colombia, Argentina, Costa Rica or the Caribbean? Our Nexus exhibit hall will feature more than 15 outsourcing service providers, advisors, tech parks and trade groups who can be highly valuable contacts as attendees undertake market evaluation.

Other speakers joining Nexus are Claire Shields (Senior VP, Verizon Business Services), Ankur Prakash (Vice President and Chief Operating Officer for Tata Consultancy’s Latin America Operations), Blanca Trevino, Chief Executive Officer at Softtek, and John Maduri (Senior Executive with Columbus Networks) and many others!
