Experience

Clínicas – (Invite Only)

A diverse and innovative gathering of leaders from across the Americas will participate in a series of facilitated, peer-to-peer workshops called clínicas. Clínicas are unique to the Biennial of the Americas experience as they offer a select group of invited specialists in their field the opportunity to interact with other innovative thought leaders on a variety of topics.

By bringing together experts with different disciplines, perspectives, backgrounds, and experiences, the Biennial provides a platform for innovative ideas to be sparked, discussed, and acted upon – capable of enhancing the quality of life in the Americas and beyond.

Each three-hour clínica is singularly designed and professionally facilitated. The outcomes of these conversations will be shared with all clínica participants immediately following the conclusion of each session at the participant luncheon. Later that evening, the general public is invited to symposia where the clínica results will help feed the conversation.
