CURITIBA, BRAZIL, September 12th, 2019 – The city of Rio de Janeiro will host the third edition of the LatAm Cross-Border Summit, a leading event about the market of digital goods and services in Latin America.

During the three days of the event, they will discuss the growth of the e-commerce market in Latin America, the penetration of global digital services in the region, and the rise of fintechs that have been revolutionizing Brazil's financial and payment industry.

Some of the keynote speakers will be André Street, co-founder and CEO at StoneCo, who will present the company's path to IPO; Rosario Marín, former US Treasurer, on the economic forecast and trends of Latin America; Fernando Teles, Country Manager Brazil at Visa, who will address innovation in the Brazilian payments industry; Camilla Junqueira, CEO at Endeavor Brazil, on how Latin America became a start-up nation; Lindsay Lehr, senior director of AMI (Americas Market Intelligence) consulting, who will talk about business opportunities in the region; and João Pedro Paro Neto, Brazil and South America president at Mastercard, on the changing regulatory environment in Latin America.

EBANX will also launch at the summit an exclusive survey on the state of cross-border purchases in Brazil. In addition to field research nationwide, the poll will also bring insights from key players in the sector about the current trends and the future of this market in the country.

“We are very proud to bring together the leading digital companies in the industry, which are changing the way people buy products and services worldwide, and that are aware of the great potential of Latin America. The LatAm Cross-Border Summit will be a unique opportunity to network and learn from the best of this industry, while also gaining insights as to how to grow your business in Latin America,” says João Del Valle, EBANX co-founder and COO.

Guests will also attend closed sessions to discuss the scenarios of LatAm's key markets, such as Mexico, Argentina and Brazil, logistics solutions, and new payment products and services.

In its last edition, in 2018, the LatAm Cross-Border Summit gathered around 150 guests in Curitiba. Speakers at the event included the then-president of Correios, Carlos Roberto Fortner, and the director of the Argentine Chamber of E-commerce (CACE), Gustavo Sambucetti.
