When asked about this year’s La Cumbre summit being held at The Venetian, show director Gaston Isoldi exclaimed, “Why not The Venetian? It’s one of the most wonderful resorts in the world and a Five Diamond resort where you can mix business and entertainment. It was a no-brainer for us to come here.”
