SANTIAGO, CHILE — The CONEXPO Latin America 2019 event held in Santiago, Chile from Oct. 2 to Oct. 5 has garnered high praise and positive support from attendees and exhibitors, say its organizers.
“We thank all show participants for their support; we achieved our goal of offering a top-quality event with real value for exhibitors and attendees. We are committed to providing a platform that connects buyers and sellers and business solutions to help them succeed as the regional economy continues to improve,” said Fred Vieira, CONEXPO Latin America Show Director and AEM Director, International Exhibitions and Events.
In addition to exhibits and an equipment demonstration area of the latest construction-related equipment, products, technologies, and services for the region, CONEXPO Latin America 2019 featured co-located learning opportunities from industry organizations. More than 20,000 registrants from dozens of countries attended the event.
Attendees had access to more than 600 exhibitors from CONEXPO Latin America 2019 and the co-located Expo Edifica (with Expo Hormigon), and 45,000 square meters of attractions. CONEXPO Latin America 2019 featured international exhibit pavilions from North America, China, Germany and Northern Ireland.
Leading industry organizations conducted learning opportunities at CONEXPO Latin America 2019, including the International Road Federation (IRF), National Commission for the Certification of Crane Operators (NCCCO), International Powered Access Federation (IPAF) and the award-winning consulting firm Pezco Economics.
“These co-located educational and learning events brought additional value to the show, and we greatly appreciate their participation to share their knowledge and expertise with attendees and exhibitors,” said Vieira.
The co-located IRF Regional Congress on Asphalt Pavements targeted public and private sector professionals and focused on regional needs to help attendees construct high-quality roads and highway networks that meet expected demand.
NCCCO participated in the show’s equipment demonstration area with interactive crane and rigging activities to advance crane safety, and IPAF promoted safer use of mobile elevating work platforms with activities at its CONEXPO Latin America 2019 stand.
The LatAm Economic Symposium at CONEXPO Latin America 2019 featured regional expert economists from Pezco Economics. The sessions offered a macroeconomic outlook of selected economies and a closer look at the construction and infrastructure industries in Spanish-speaking markets, with the opportunity for interactions between presenters and exhibitors with attendees.
The Association of Equipment Manufacturers (AEM), owners of CONEXPO Latin America 2019, continued its co-operative partnership with the Chilean Chamber of Construction for the betterment of the construction and infrastructure industry in Latin America.
“Latin America is an important business region for many AEM members and for our exhibitors, and AEM has worked co-operatively for many years with the Chilean Chamber of Construction. We value this relationship and look forward to many more years of co-operation in continuing to advance the growth and prosperity of the industry,” said AEM President Dennis Slater.
In line with other major industry events, CONEXPO Latin America moves to a three-year cycle with the 2019 show.
