Liberatum Mexico


The first ever Mexico International Festival of Culture and Mexico International Leadership Summit - a 3 day major world class programme to be held in Mexico City from 15-18 March  2018. In partnership with Makken. An annual platform and showcase that aims to revolutionise the cultural landscape of Mexico’s capital and enhance the image of Mexico’s cultural, commercial, technology, fashion industries to the world and help create new international business opportunities and developments.





In recent years, Mexico City has become an international epicentre for contemporary culture. The development within the business, creative, environmental, and luxury sectors has turned the Mexican capital into a global metropolitan force.

Following its success in key cities around the world, and in honour of the spectacular cultural moment Mexico is going through, Liberatum is launching an annual international leadership summit and festival of culture in Mexico City from 15-18 March 2018. This momentous event will provide an impactful platform where some of the finest minds in the world will come together to collaborate on a compelling and original programme with their Mexican counterparts open to the general public.

Liberatum Mexico aims to be a world-class, prestigeous forum dedicated to cultural diplomacy with participants of the highest international calibre – from Mexico to the world. 

Liberatum Mexico will take place during three days, featuring live events – conferences, panels, talks, debates, performances, workshops, screenings, exhibitions, etc. – in several venues around the city, and complemented by an evening programme of celebratory parties, incredible moments, special events, and the Liberatum Cultural Honour Gala.

Liberatum Mexico will become a yearly international phenomenon – a worldly destination for those in search of inspiration from the best cultural minds and business leaders on the planet.
