MIAMI, Oct. 14, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- The IX Latin American Leasing Conference will explore industry trends and attract equipment leasing and finance professionals from Latin America, North America and Europe Nov. 17-18, 2011, at the Hotel Intercontinental Doral in Miami. The conference is sponsored by The Alta Group Latin American Region (LAR), with simultaneous English/Spanish translation provided.

Rafael Castillo-Triana, CEO of The Alta Group LAR, said industry leaders and Alta professionals will discuss specific challenges and opportunities in the marketplace, with emphasis on innovation.

Topics will include the following:

  • An Overview of the State of the Industry in Latin America
  • The Future of the Leasing Industry in Brazil, Mexico, Chile, Colombia, Argentina, Peru and Central America, from the perspective of the practitioners
  • Changes in the Market, Driven by Innovation, Regulatory Challenges, Asset Management, Consolidation and Funding Challenges

  • Energy Leasing (Renewable and Non-Renewable)
  • Innovation in Leasing for Transportation
  • Airplane and Railroad Leasing
