Expomin Chile



25-29 April 2016

Following the success of the CEA delivered sell-out UK Pavilion at Exponor this year, the CEA has been appointed by the British Embassy in Santiago to run a UK Pavilion next year at Expomin, the largest mining exhibition in Latin America, held in Santiago, 25-29 April 2016. The UK Pavilion has a great location in Hall 1B (the International Hall) close to an exit to the outside exhibit area, guaranteeing excellent footfall to your stand.

Chile is an easy country in which to do business, and the highly experienced UKTI and British Embassy Santiago teams for the Chilean Mining High Value Opportunity (HVO) will be on hand before and during the exhibition to assist you with contacts and introductions to key players. The British Embassy will host a UK networking reception during the exhibition – giving you the opportunity to meet leading companies in the Latin American mining industry in a relaxed setting.

Exhibiting on the UK Pavilion makes your life simple – the CEA provides a one stop shop for all your exhibiting needs. You don’t even need to speak Spanish to organise your stand! The UK branded turnkey shell scheme stands give you stand space, construction, electricity, lighting, carpet and a set of furniture. The CEA will take care of all the organisational headaches – leaving you free to concentrate on setting your priorities and achieving your goals at the show.
