    Important Update!

    As previously announced, we have very reluctantly had to cancel arrangements to hold the 2019 Impact Summit in Santiago, owing to continuing civil unrest. 

    We are happy to announce that we have been successful in shifting the Summit to Buenos Aires, 18-19 November, followed as previously by the SOCAP, FMO, ACTO and NAB meetings on the 20th November.

    Please do finalize your travel arrangements. We will send out an accommodation booking link early next week.

    You will find updates to the Summit agenda and speakers on our website, over the next few days.

    If you have any questions, please contact summit2019@gsgii.org.

    We look forward to seeing you in Buenos Aires!
