LASA2018 Statistics: History in the Making!

January 24, 2018

We wanted to take a moment to share with you exciting LASA2018 congress numbers!

Barcelona has drawn more than 7,000 accepted participants in over 1,700 sessions which will be held between Wednesday, May 23 and Saturday, May 26, 2018.

There is significant participation from Latin American countries, as well as Europe (especially the United Kingdom).

We have new presenters coming from places such as Hungary, New Zealand and Japan, eager to support and join one of our nearer congresses.

We are excited about this diversity within the congress, truly a “globalized world” perspective, which we are sure will lead to many productive conversations on Latin America.

Don’t miss the opportunity to be a part of this historic moment for LASA.

Make new, lasting connections.

Europe never looked better!


¡Hasta pronto!
