With the end of the year in sight, thoughts turn ahead to 2024—what will the New Year hold?
For our All Access Pass members, who have automatic VIP attendance to all of our 10+ various annual conferences, webinars, and events, the calendar for 2024 is an exciting jaunt around the globe, including stops in…
• Latin America
And those are only the country- or region-based events.
We’ll also be hosting themed conferences around ideas, like…
• How to protect your wealth
• How and where to buy property overseas
• And more…
Let’s take a deeper look at these monthly overseas adventures…
We open the year in Panama with our Live and Invest in Panama Conference taking place in Panama City Jan. 17–19.
We like to call Panama our “Do Anything Haven.” Whether you’re looking for a warm tropical retirement, for steady investment opportunities, for a backup residency, or to beef up your foreign real estate portfolio, or start a business, Panama is one of the best destinations in the world. It’s like a one-stop shop for all things overseas…
A banking hub that uses the U.S. dollar, this little country is pro-business and pro-foreigner, and it’s also one of the few remaining true tax havens in the world.
In addition to investment and property market insights, at our event in January (our 15th!) we’ll show you the best places to live for access to modern amenities, the best places for health care, and the best places to live well on a Pacific or Caribbean beach on a modest budget.
By far our most popular country-focused event of the year, this one sells out and fills the room without fail.
Because Belize is truly a Shangri-la…
A sunny land of opportunity, this tiny country is a tropical wonderland where you could reinvent your life, chase adventure, and retire well at a dramatically reduced cost.
It’s an adventurer’s playground where you can walk among ancient Mayan ruins, swim beneath rain forest waterfalls, and explore hidden caves…
Belize is pure, classic Caribbean. With 250 miles of white-sand Caribbean beaches and more than 400 islands, plus expansive rain forests with huge networks of rivers and caves.
And it’s also the only English-speaking country in all Latin America.
Add to that the fact that it’s also one of the world’s best offshore havens, offering huge tax incentives, privacy, and easy residency opportunities…
All that as short as a 120-minute flight from the United States, meaning trips for family and friends are a breeze.
We’ve helped hundreds of people move here successfully over the last 30 years, from the white-sand fringed cayes to the rugged interior and all the coasts in between…
And savvy, independent-minded people from all walks of life are opting for low-key, English-speaking Belize in ever-growing numbers—should you be one of them?
Sunny days, stunning sea views, happy people…
A low cost of living, affordable property, and tasty food…
Plus, arguably the best beaches, the best golfing, and the best weather in Europe…
And, to top it all off, the classic Mediterranean diet here counts as one of the healthiest in the world, helping prevent heart disease, Alzheimer’s, and more.
For these reasons and others, Portugal is Europe’s #1 Place To Live Overseas.
If you’ve been a Live And Invest Overseas reader for some time, you may already know that we believe Portugal is your very best choice for living well in Europe…
But knowing the name of a country is just the start, for your options here are many…
You have dozens of options along the coastline, plus several charming cities as well as inland regions where you’ll find riverside and vineyard living.
Where should you go—and where should you avoid?
What are the biggest surprises you’ll encounter? And what’s the easiest way to get a visa to stay here?
Our Portugal Conference answers all these questions and many more, with the help of our veteran team on the ground, including dozens of local experts and expats who have made the move and have an insider’s perspective to share—the insights that can only come with personal experience.
Our newest country of focus, this tiny Adriatic nation offers all the delights of Europe at a fraction of the cost of Italy, Greece, or even Croatia, but shares all of their same assets.
Europe’s “Secret Riviera” remains off the radar but instantly charms everyone who visits…
Jacques Cousteau called it “the purest part of the Mediterranean”…
Sophia Loren said it’s like “the most beautiful fairytale of my childhood”…
And George Bernard Shaw wondered whether he was “on paradise or on the moon”…
From the foothills of its dramatic mountains, the views over the crystal-clear bay are out of this world. It boasts warm weather most of the year, its cobblestone streets are some of the safest you can wander, and it’s very welcoming of foreigners.
Best of all, a couple can live the good life here from US$1,691 a month… which makes it one of the most affordable places to spend time on the Continent.
Here, you can rent a one- or two-bed apartment just a few minutes’ walk from the Old Town for about US$600 per month… or buy your own place from as little as US$60,000… enjoy a three-course meal for two at a local spot for around US$40 (including wine)… grab a hearty breakfast for US$10… a cappuccino for less than US$2… and enjoy a pizza slice for US$3…
If you’re attracted by the Old World and the chance to live a sophisticated lifestyle at a low cost, then you owe it to yourself to explore this emerging haven—while it’s still affordable and while its doors are wide open.
After hosting our recent first-ever Live And Invest In Spain Conference to roaring success, we’ve realized that this one will likely become a regular on our event calendar.
One of my favorite countries in the world (I’ve often said that if not Paris, I’d be living in Barcelona), Spain is a place where stunning beaches, vibrant cities, and rich cultural heritage blend seamlessly together to create the perfect setting for your new adventure.
Spain is one unbelievably diverse country, and we present it to you, warts and all, by experts and expats speaking from firsthand experience.
This country is where you can indulge in a life of leisure… immerse yourself in a vibrant culture… and bask in the beauty of the Old World and the Mediterranean.
Our conference is the only event that reveals all the best places in Spain to live, gathers all our top experts from every corner of the country, and leaves you with knowledge, support, and contacts you need to make your move with confidence, in whichever corner of Spain you choose, from its ski-ready mountains to its world-class beaches, and from its quaint villages to its brand-name cities.
Not sure yet where you might like to settle, but sure that it’ll be in the Old World?
Our Live And Invest In Europe Virtual Conference is tailored for just that eventuality.
Covering all of our favorite destinations on the Continent, this three-day event is a whirlwind trip around Europe, highlighting the pros and cons of a life in each of the top countries on the other side of the Atlantic.
We often hear from folks that they just can’t afford a life in Europe, that a life here is just too expensive for the average Joe or Jane… But Europe is my personal choice for a life overseas, and I can tell you from firsthand experience that that just couldn’t be further from the truth.
It’s true that, on average, the cost of living for expats in Latin America or Asia is going to be lower than in Europe—but that depends on your location… and, certainly, life in the top European retirement havens is likely to be more affordable than staying in the States.
And consider the tradeoffs: the quality of life, the idyllic lifestyles on offer, and the benefits that come with living here—access to the best health care in the world, for example.
Europe—home to the world’s elite retirement havens—is not beyond your reach. We know of 8 different countries here, including France, where you could live well on US$2,000 a month or less.
Once armed with the right insights and the right destinations, you’ll be amazed at how easy it actually is to enjoy the good life in Europe at a cost you can easily afford.
And this is the only event of its kind to give you just those insights, as well as help you consider, compare, and contrast Europe’s best places to live.
On the other hand, perhaps you don’t want to travel as far as Europe…
If you don’t know exactly where you’re headed but you’ve decided that you want to stay in the Americas—where it’s often only a few hours to get “back home” and you’re likely to not even change time zones—then this is the event for you.
With its famous white-sand beaches, romantic Spanish-colonial cities, and tranquil mountain retreats, along with its low cost of living, tasty food, lively fiestas, and laid-back way of life…
Latin America is North America’s #1 retirement destination abroad.
For Americans, this is the easiest part of the world to settle into a new life—it’s cheap, sunny, familiar, and nearby.
Our Live And Invest In Latin America Virtual Conference allows you to compare and contrast all your top live-and-invest options in this part of the world at the same time. It’s also the only time we’ll have all our top contacts and experts in Latin America gathered together at the same time.
If you’re after the best quality of life for your future without any danger of burning through your nest egg, your search must begin in Latin America.
No matter what kind of lifestyle you’re after, and no matter what size budget you have to play with, there’s a place with your name on it in Latin America.
You could escape to your dream home overlooking the crashing Pacific…
Or live steps from the powder sand and gentle waters of the Caribbean…
Maybe you’d prefer a sophisticated city, full of Spanish-colonial charm, where you’d never be short on entertainment…
Or perhaps you yearn to spend your days riding through the foothills of the southern Sierras… and nights unwinding under the stars with a glass of wine from your own boutique vineyard.
These kinds of experiences are a reality for millions of expats in Latin America…
They’re all here because they can have them for half (or less) than you’d pay for the same privileges in the United States or Canada.
Could this region of the world be your paradise, as it is now for so many Live And Invest Overseas readers?

How To Protect Your Wealth
Our Offshore Wealth Summitt will be in its 14th year in 2024, and the concepts we explore during this one-of-a-kind event have never been more important.
This event is the simple answer to jumpstarting and supercharging your financial safety and prosperity—carefully and 100% legally—with the help of fully vetted and trusted experts.
For this event, the focus is entirely on you and your personal situation. Attention is spent on small, personalized workshops that help cater to the needs of the individual, but at the usual low cost of our standard conferences instead of the sky-high costs of personal consulting.
Over the course of three intensive days, you’ll learn methods, strategies, and “inner-circle” techniques to protect your hard-earned assets… and to make a tidy profit, too.
This is the support you need in order to learn such insights as:
· Strategies for investing offshore (including real estate and commodities) that are both profitable and private—as well as the best opportunities available in the world right now in each of these areas…
· How to take advantage of the world’s best banking havens—and find out which ones are best suited to your needs (and will still accept American clients)…
· Structures that could make it impossible for anyone in the world to touch or seize your assets (again, all 100% legal)…
· The big tax issues to address when investing, living, and doing business offshore (including issues such as the Foreign Earned Income Exclusion, domicile versus residence for tax purposes, taking advantage of low-tax and zero-tax jurisdictions)…
· The benefits of incorporating and doing business in an offshorehaven (as well as introductions to the best offshore havens in the world today)…
· The top current options worldwide for obtaining a second residency or passport (and the important reasons why you might want one in the first place)… plus the world’s top “Welcome Mat” countries, places that are competing for you with special residency benefit packages…
How And Where To Buy Property Overseas
For the 10th year running we’ll host our Global Property Summit, and the interest in this event has become enormous in that time, with good reason…
A perfect storm of political, social, and financial conditions has led to the best time in our lifetimes to purchase or invest in property abroad.
Whether you’re considering a foreign property investment, a second home overseas, or both, we guarantee the Global Property Summit will exceed your expectations.
Whether you’re just getting started in this arena or are looking to add to your current portfolio, this event is for you.
We start with the basics…
• Why buy property overseas?
• How do you identify a market of interest?
• How does investing in real estate outside the United States differ from investing Stateside?
• What are the top markets for investment right now… and why?
And as we build a foundation, we dive deeper and deeper into the world of offshore real estate investment, leaving you with actionable opportunities and short- and long-term plans for creating your own personal real estate empire.
This one-of-a-kind event will provide you with more knowledge about international real estate than you could learn on your own in years of research and months of international travel.
We equip you with everything you need to identify the right market for you, to find the right property for you, to buy securely, and to have your purchase “pay its own way,” and even earn you a profit.
You’ll learn how to buy the home of your dreams, in a location where you always wanted to be, and make money off the purchase… all while avoiding the potential pitfalls and mitigating the respective risks.
This was just a quick taste of what you’ll learn at each of these events, but we could tell you much more about each one… get in touch with us to learn more about any of these events in more detail.
And, remember, even if you can’t make an event in person, you can always join us virtually!
