FISA, the organizer of Expomin 2016, Latin America’s premier mining exhibition, appointed Messe Düsseldorf North America to represent the event in the U.S. Expomin will be held from April 25-29, 2016, in the Centro de Eventos Espacio Riesco in Santiago, Chile.
Over 80,000 visitors and 1,600 exhibitors from 25 countries are expected to participate at the 2016 edition. Since 1990, Expomin has established itself as the largest mining event in Latin America with an exceptional range of innovative technologies and solutions for the mining industry.
“We are thrilled to have been awarded the opportunity to help U.S. companies enter into or to expand their business in the lucrative Latin American marketplace by offering our services to make participation easier and more cost-effective,” stated Thomas Mitchell, president, Messe Düsseldorf North America. “As the U.S. subsidiary of Messe Düsseldorf in Germany, one of the leading trade fair organizers who manages events in many different countries worldwide, we have extensive knowledge in this field. We are experienced in taking care of U.S. participations – be it individual exhibitors or in form of pavilions – at many trade fairs around the globe.”
Within the U.S. pavilion, American companies can exhibit with their own booth design or opt for the USA pavilion package (fully furnished booth). All U.S. exhibitors will have access to a lounge area with catering, Internet access and the onsite service of a project manager, hostesses and interpreters. Extra meeting rooms will also be available.
Expomin 2016 will feature the latest equipment, technology and services specifically geared towards the Chilean and Latin American mining industry. Organized by FISA S.A., the event is supported by the Chilean Government through the Ministry of Mining, the National Society of Mining, the Chilean Institute of Mining Engineers and the Mining Council.
The venue of Expomin 2016 offers numerous advantages to establish new business opportunities due to the U.S. Chilean Free Trade Agreement, the country’s political and economical stability and the fact that Chile leads all Latin American countries in mining production.
