The first of Russell Bedford International’s 2020 conference schedule has opened in Panama City, Central America with the Americas Conference and COIBE (Comité Iberoamericano) Meeting. The conference which is divided in two commenced on Thursday 23 January with the COIBE meeting (in Spanish) and follows with the Americas Conference taking place on Friday 24 January and Saturday 25 January.

This year Russell Bedford’s conference calendar will once again take members around the globe, from Panama City to Bucharest, Singapore to Vienna with more locations for additional meetings being planned.

Speaking about the opening of Russell Bedford’s conference season, CEO Stephen Hamlet said: “After what has been a very busy start to 2020, following the recruitment of three new firms in Cameroon, North West England and Croatia, it’s fantastic to be ‘on the road’ once again doing what I love most – meeting our members and learning from them about how we can enhance the network while taking them further in their business growth journeys.”

He added: “Member engagement peaked to an all-time high in 2019 following many great successes throughout the year, so I’m eager to continue maintaining that engagement and developing the important relationships that ensure we’re consistently improving upon membership value by listening to what our members need and supporting inter-firm business relations.”
