Remote Talks

Conversations that lead to mind-changing discussions

Every year, Remote Latin America invites inspiring guests to share their experiences and thoughts about important subjects related to the travel industry.

In 2019, Responsible Tourism is the main theme that will guide our conversations. On a planet that faces challenging conflicts like mass immigration and intolerance of cultural differences, we believe our pioneering experience of bringing a travel show to a virtually unknown village like Barichara is a great opportunity for us to discuss – and to practice – responsible tourism in a way that respects local people and the environment.

By bringing influential figures to talk to our community, Remote Latin America intends to demonstrate for everyone the urgency in promoting sustainable tourism, fair business practices and mind-changing discussions to make Latin America a better place in which to live and travel.

Our selection of keynote speakers for Remote 2019 will be announced soon.
