The innovative European-Latin American AV Summit (ELAS), supported by ACCIO-Catalonia Trade & Investment, promises to bring together government representatives, thought leaders, and industry giants to foster understanding, strengthen connections, and promote innovation across continents.
ELAS 2024 represents the epitome of intercontinental collaboration, providing a unique platform for technological pioneers from Europe and Latin America to exchange ideas and foster innovative partnerships. We are proud to host key speakers at the inaugural summit, including Jaume Collboni, Mayor of Barcelona, and Javi López, Co-Chair of the Euro-Latin American Parliamentary Assembly, said Mike Blackman, Managing Director of Integrated Systems Events.

The topics of the ELAS 2024 sessions will include an overview of the AV market and AV industry trends in Latin America and the rest of the world; the EU-LAC Foundation (European Union, Latin America, and the Caribbean) and its projects; and the Global Gateway Investment Agenda (GGIA).
