Attending the 2023 LACMA Convention

John Seal attended the 2023 LACMA Convention which included panels, presentations and a unique opportunity to give back to those in need in Buenos Aires, Argentina.

From February 26 – March 1, the Latin American and Caribbean International Movers Association (LACMA) hosted its 2023 Convention in Buenos Aires, Argentina. The annual event attracted over 200 industry professionals representing prestigious moving and relocation services companies from around the world. The event included presentations, panels and fun, plus the opportunity to join our LACMA community to build housing within Buenos Aires.

Each year, LACMA invites their members from around the world to network and brainstorm in order to further enhance their offerings across its global markets.

John Seal, Senior Vice President, Operations, and LACMA Board Member attended the convention and moderated one of the panels with fellow LACMA members to discuss industry trends, challenges and opportunities. The panel included Miguel Flores of Aviomar and LACMA Past President; Pauline Collins, Supply Chain Manager, Voerman; Phil Wells, SVP of CapRelo.; Sheana Robischon-Zales, VP, International Operations for Graebel; and Joleen Lauffer, President, Aires. John also gave an ‘ignite’ style presentation on leadership during the general assembly.

Not only did we talk business with those in attendance, but we also got down to business as well – helping build homes for families in Buenos Aires! LACMANext members, in partnership with TECHO, a youth-led non-profit that works to create homes for low-income families living in poverty around the world, led the efforts. More than 45 participants came to join in building these homes that will drastically improve the quality of life for four families in Buenos Aires. We were honored to be a part of this project!

We’ve enjoyed being a part of LACMA’s international community for the past 20 years and seeing so many of our colleagues and friends from around the world during Convention. We look forward to future events and philanthropic opportunities with LACMA in the coming years!
