Maccaferri Latin American successfully participated in the event
Organizers of Expomina Peru 2016 estimated that the event generated over US$ 63,115 million, between the dates of 14 and 16 September, in Lima. Over 1.200 exhibitors came together, with an increase of over 20% in the volume of business closed being recorded in comparison to the last edition of the event, in 2014.
The 2016 edition of Expomina Peru also had other indicators of success. Representatives of at least 33 countries visited Peru in order to evaluate opportunities for new investments.
Throughout the course of the event, more than 100,000 people visited the exhibition area, and participated in ten international forums dedicated to the future of mining in the country. Some of the topics covered in the forums were potential markets and prices, mining and human resources, social and environmental development, technology and innovation in mining, and education and innovation.
According to the president of the event organisation, Eva Arias, in 2016, the share of the Gross Domestic Product (GDP) linked to mining is expected to increase by a total of 10.7%. A point of reference between suppliers and managers for mining companies, Expomina is considered to be the largest mining machinery event in Peru.
