Join us in September and be part of a high-level U.S.-Mexico discussion on how to create jobs and enhance education in the United States and Mexico; discover industry opportunities in renewable energy, aerospace, tourism, and logistics; export your ideas, goods and services to the U.S. or Mexico, and attract investment and enhance local economic development.
Simon will be moderating a panel on the importance of tourism between the United States and Mexico. Other panelists include: Luis Alfonso Lugo, Under Secretary of Tourism Operations, Mexico Ministry of Tourism; John T. Reilly, President, SeaWorld San Diego; Steve Moore, President & CEO, Greater Phoenix Convention & Visitors Bureau and Erik Lee, Associate Director, North American Center for Transborder Studies at ASU.
