Antofagasta Fair Grounds, Antofagasta
Exponor has long been considered a major mining exhibition. It is held every second year, in this world class mining region that caters to very large open pit and underground copper mines. This 15th event will bring together 800 exhibitors to an audience of 35,000 well-educated mining professionals.
Mining in Chile represents more than 50% of the gross domestic product of the country. As such the industry gets the top attention of the government, and the complete value chain in the country. The Antofagasta area produces 54% of this mining output making it a valuable destination of choice.
Also, Chile produces a high calibre of engineers since the industry has a long history and pays well. Chile has long accepted international technologies into their industry, and has a great respect for Canadian mining technologies and services. The Chilean mining market will reach a staggering value of $46B in 2016 with a series of very large and long term mines slated for production. With a very stable political and social environment, Chile continues to be a destination of choice for Canadian mining product and service providers.
Exponor offers comprehensive activities tailored to the technical visitor including an exhibitors technology show case, technical lectures, technical seminars, equipment demonstrations, and a business networking forum.
