CONSERVATIVES INTERNATIONAL - AMERICAS

Miami will play host to Conservatives International’s first regional conference; gathering pro-market advocates from the Americas, and beyond. Participants will discover the successes of free trade as a means of poverty alleviation, conflict resolution and social justice; and explore the hopes for its global progress.

The conference is sold out.

WHY NOW

After the events of 2016, there is no better time to establish Conservatives International as a platform for discussion of the liberal reforms our world needs to end poverty across the globe.

After Brexit, Trump victory and a definitive ‘No’ to the referendum in Colombia; international trade, security and the role of society during elections are important topics for discussion in order to better understand what is to occur in the coming years.
