Greenberg Traurig Supports Denver’s Biennial of the Americas Festival with Mexico City Reception

DENVER – June 19, 2017 – The international law firm Greenberg Traurig, LLP is supporting the Biennial of the Americas, a week-long event to take place in Denver Sept. 12-16, 2017, with a reception on June 28, 2017 at its Mexico City office.

"We are very proud Greenberg Traurig has a seat at the table for this very important event with one of Colorado’s top trading partners," said Tyler Coombe, a shareholder in the White Collar Defense & Special Investigations group in the Denver office. "The firm’s Denver office has built strong relationships with Mexico and those who were involved in previous Biennial events."

Coombe, who acts as an ambassador to the Biennial of the Americas, was instrumental in planning the event alongside the attorneys in Greenberg Traurig’s Mexico City office. The goal of the reception is to inspire individuals from the business community in Mexico to participate as delegates during the September event in Denver.

The Biennial of the Americas was established in 2010 by Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper while he was Mayor of Denver. This week-long festival of ideas, arts, business, and culture takes place in Denver every two years, and is the most important gathering of top elected officials, business, non-governmental organizations (NGO), and cultural leaders focused on the Western hemisphere.

The goal of Biennial of the Americas is to bring together the most innovative leaders from across the Americas for activities and events intended to accelerate and foster more substantive political, commercial, and cultural exchange.

Business leaders from all parts of Mexico are being invited to the kick-off celebration on June 28, 2017, with festivities starting at 7:30 p.m. at Greenberg Traurig’s Mexico City office. Guests will have an opportunity to learn about the Biennial experience and possibly join the official Mexico delegation to the Biennial’s main event in Denver.
