FutureSource Summit: Mexico’s First Major Conference on ITO, Tech Exchange and Human Capital Development

FutureSource Group and Next Coast Media have announced the dates and venue for the launch of FutureSource Summit, a conference designed to showcase the new tools, insights and connections that North American corporations can gain by working with Mexican outsourcing providers, in-house IT centers, software partners and service providers.

One of the key components of FutureSource is to explore the opportunities that technology has created within the dynamic Mexican economy and examine how international companies can take advantage of these opportunities.

FutureSource Summit is aimed towards IT business professionals, IT admins, business intelligence leaders, sourcing executives, call center professionals and decision makers. FutureSource Summit aims to highlight the significance of Mexico as an emerging hub for global outsourcing companies to serve customers in the USA and Latin America.

Mexico has made huge strides in the last few years in the areas of higher-end software development, digital animation and business process services, while also accelerating its focus on training young people for careers in science and technology related industries,” said Kirk Laughlin, Managing Director of FutureSource Group and Nearshore Americas, a co-sponsor of the summit. “At the same time, Mexico’s largest corporations have gained increasing benefit from working with major global IT consultancies to improve their efficiencies and market performance. We see FutureSource as filling a critical gap in the understanding of what outsourcing can do for businesses in Mexico, the United States and globally.”

The summit will comprise several panels and sessions that aim to discuss the emergence of new markets and opportunities in the Mexican economy. Some of the topics that will headline these panels and conferences include:
