IMPORTANT ANNOUNCEMENT: Due to a much stronger than expected response to this event, we are now over-capacity at the original venue, The Penn Club and coupled with ongoing demand for tickets, we have moved this event location to a larger venue that can better accommodate a group of our size and re-opened registration.


The new venue is:
32 Old Slip
Event Center NYC Facilities in the Financial District
32 Old Slip (bet Water St. and FDR) New York, NY 10005   
(646) 854-7951

All remaining seats available on a first-come, first-served basis. For those participants already registered and staying near the original venue, The Penn Club, we sincerely apologize for any inconvenience this change in venue may cause. Travel from The Penn Club to 32 Old Slip is easy via taxi or subway.

If opting for the subway, simple take the 4 or 5 to Wall Street, or the 2 or 3 to Wall Street and walk approximately 0.3 miles east to 32 Old Slip. If for any reason travel to the new location presents a challenge, please email ben@momentumevents.com and we will explore all available options together. Thank you for your understanding. 


New for Fall 2015: Event Co-located with the Cuba Finance, Infrastructure & Investment Summit*

More than 320 high-ranking individuals recently attended Knowledge@Wharton and Momentum’s recent sold-out Cuba events many of whom are already exploring the potential for increasing trade with one of the largest and most critical markets in the Caribbean.

Tourism. Aviation. Infrastructure. Hospitality. Agriculture. Food. Retail – Every industry will have its own set of Cuban regulatory hurdles that will need to be overcome in order for U.S. businesses to successfully stake a claim.

With the political and regulatory landscape shifting at a rapid pace its essential that US corporate counsel and the organizations they represent remain fully apprised of the constantly changing situation.

For organizations considering a move into the Cuban market building a trusted network is key. Momentum’s sold-out Cuba events are the only forum proven to draw the key influencers and decision makers in the space.

With support from the U.S. Cuba Trade Alliance, Knowledge@Wharton and Momentum’s 2nd U.S. –  Cuba Corporate Counsel Summit will again bring together GC’s from major US corporations charged with the task of navigating through the regulatory landscape. They will be joined by outside counsel from the US and Cuba who have the expertise they need. 

 “It’s important to remember that Cuba remains a communist country, and that there will be significant legal entanglements before CEOs can start signing deals with the Cuban government. But, (there are) industries that stand to be big winners in a U.S.-Cuba thaw.”

Event will sell out: Register Now : Get the answers your clients or leadership are looking for…

  • Understanding and dealing with Cuban regulatory agencies
  • Assessing the competitive landscape and risk factors when entering Cuba
  • A primer on Cuban financial markets and remittances.
