PMI Tour Cono Sur 2015 Congress successfully completed both in Argentina and throughout Southern Latin America Region.

The PMI Tour Cono Sur is a Regional Congress taking place in multiple locations on successive dates, providing the synergy between PMI Chapters and allowing both exhibitors and participants attend several consecutive events. The first edition of the Tour was held in 2005 between PMI chapters and Buenos Aires, Argentina, Santiago, Chile Montevideo, Uruguay.

In this eleventh edition in 2015, the PMI Tour Cono Sur has been developed in 12 locations into the countries of Peru, Chile, Argentina, Uruguay, Paraguay and Bolivia.

In my November report I mentioned about the successful conferences held in the cities of Cordoba and Buenos Aires, which have had excellent exhibits.

The PMI Tour Cono Sur continued in the city of Mendoza, with the organization of PMI Nuevo Cuyo Chapter during the days Friday 6th and Saturday 7th, in November.

On Friday 6th, the congress was held at the National University of Cuyo with lectures from various industries and subjects speakers, ending with a great keynote speaker, as it is Diego Rosner, executive producer of the 3D animation movie called “Metegol”, also known as “Futbolin” in some countries and “Underdogs” in the United States.

Rosner commented about how it was that from an idea that at first seemed far-fetched, it became a project that finally culminated in the successful Argentine-Spanish co-production film, directed by Juan Jose Campanella, an Argentine director recognized for having won an Oscar for his film “The Secret in Their Eyes”, and inspired by the story “Memories of a right wing” by the famous Argentine writer Roberto Fontanarrosa.
