LIVE ON NOVEMBER 29th, 2014 AND AVAILABLE FOR 60 DAYS
We now have over six hours of content immediately available for viewing, including a question and answer session dealing everything from Visas and Work Permits to Social Life and Security in Panama. We will have additional live and pre-recorded sessions through January 31st. If you cannot attend a specific live session, you can send in your questions via email.
The conference will be "live" on the 29th of November. This is the first day when those attending can ask questions of our speakers during live presentations that are not pre-recorded. After conference day, ticket-holders can return to review presentations at any time for sixty days following, effectively until 31 January 2015. All of this for only $37, a bargain in any language and any nation! And you can sign up in any of 15 languages and pay in any of 21 currencies.
Why this conference in this style? Panama Wave is pioneering a new approach to "Panama conferences". We know how difficult it is for potential relocators to make up their minds whether or not Panama is the best place to live or invest in comparison to other Latin American nations. It is very hard to make that decision based on multiple websites, many of which provide inaccurate, contradictory, or out-of-date information. There are conferences that charge $1,000 or more for people to attend in Panama, but attendees have to pay for their own hotels, meals, local transport and everything else, so the final bill is much higher. This is simply too much to ask of most potential relocators and investors before they feel they have a good sense of what Panama offers and from a trusted source. They need an answer to their question, "Is it worth my time, money, and effort to visit Panama?"
In addition to interviews and presentations pre-recorded specifically for this conference providing information that you can use in your decision-making, additional "live stream" events will take place that allow viewers to ask questions from their computer and get direct responses from the speakers. In this way, the Panama Wave Conference will provide a "live" connection between speakers and the audience as if they were in the room together.
All of us at Panama Wave S.A. want to make this conference experience as rewarding and useful as possible, being honest while putting Panama's "best foot forward". We invite you to join is this pioneering effort to use the power of the Internet for everyone's benefit at a price you can afford!

When Bob Adams set off to be a Peace Corps Volunteer in the Philippines in 1967, he had no idea that his life would change forever. Over the last 47 years, Bob worked in more than 40 nations in Latin America, Africa, Asia and the Middle East, primarily as a consultant in various aspects of economic development for the UN, the US foreign aid program, various non-profit humanitarian groups, and commercial enterprises. As a result of all this experience, Bob knew he wanted to relocate to another nation with better weather, a lower cost of living, and a stable, but growing, economy. In February of 2004, he found exactly what he was looking for in Panama.
In the months following his arrival, Bob felt that the websites promoting relocation and investment in Panama were too often inaccurate and misleading. Thinking, as most people did at the time, that all expatriates interested in Panama were retirees, he set up a website at RetirementWave.com. Without advertising or promotion, thousands of people joined as members over the years with currently more than 6,000 members from more than 40 nations globally who value his analysis and insights. In the process, Bob discovered that a large portion of people interested in Panama were not traditional retirees. Many were old enough to retire, but wanted to continue working or set up their own small businesses. Many others were too young to retire, some of them wanting to bring families to Panama. As a result, Retirement Wave's name is no longer entirely accurate, but that has not stopped people of all backgrounds from joining. Access to the site is free and Bob answers all his emails, and there have been thousands, personally.
In addition, as Bob said more than a decade ago, "Everyone in Panama has an opinion as to why expatriates want to relocate and what they need, but no one has any facts." In relation to US citizens, Bob contracted a professional polling firm to conduct nine surveys of the American people on the topic of relocation from 2005 through 2011, the first ones and only ones ever done. On global relocation, he wrote two articles for Barron's, the weekly financial and investment "sister" publication to the Wall Street Journal, as well as other respected publications, and was interviewed on CNBC, Radio France, Australian public television, and similar media globally. The combination of his research in the US with his extensive correspondence and face-to-face discussions with expats from all over the world at Retirement Wave, he has developed a realistic understanding of the needs and concerns of expatriates interested in relocating or investing in Panama.
