April 30th, 2012 / Chicago, IL. USA

ITRA Global, one of the largest real estate organizations devoted to the representation of corporate tenants and occupiers of commercial real estate worldwide, has announced that Juan Guillermo Perez, Director of the United Kingdom Commercial Office for Proexport Colombia  will be a featured panelist at the ITRA Global 2012 Corporate Real Estate Symposium  on September 12, 2012 at the Park Plaza Victoria London, 239 Vauxhall Bridge Road, in London, England.

Debra Stracke Anderson, Chairman Emeritus of ITRA Global and Chairman of the Symposium Committee, says the event will be a tremendous resource for company executives who must navigate a global marketplace dominated by economic uncertainty, quite a change from the boom era of just a few years ago. “With the addition of Mr. Juan Guillermo Perez to our economic development panel, we bring the perspective of a vibrant and increasingly important market in the Americas,” she explains. “His insights about the business and cultural nuances of Colombia and Latin America in general will prove invaluable to European corporate executives seeking new information about doing business in today’s ever-changing climate.”

Juan Guillermo Perez says the Symposium provides his economic development organization with a unique and highly desirable opportunity to interact with executives from around the globe who influence relocation and expansion decisions.

“Thank you to ITRA Global for including Proexport Colombia in this symposium; one which will be of extensive importance to the sector in promoting the opportunities in our country for foreign investment. Colombia is a country which is experiencing unprecedented and exemplary growth while ensuring that foreign investment can have straightforward access to opportunities. We very much look forward to participating to the conversation on economic development in what should be a thought provoking panel during one of the industry’s leading events,” Perez explains.

Proexport Colombia provides business opportunities, clear information on requirements, strategies for expanding services and goods at an international level, participation in business fairs and assistance by experts for investors, exporters and professionals seeking to establish a presence in Colombia.

Divided into two sessions, “Doing Business in the Americas” is a premier all-day event featuring top corporate executives and economic development officials from around the world. One session will include ProExport Colombia’s Juan Guillermo Perez and other economic development executives from government agencies in the Americas, who will address issues ranging from labor availability and costs, to transportation capabilities, taxation and much more for companies moving into their regions, along with other facility and location factors. The other panel, comprised of top global corporate executives, will help European companies understand how to increase their competitive advantage and profits with corporate real estate and obtain a better understanding of facility availability, build-to-suit and leasing vs. ownership options in the Americas today.
