Global Mining Investment Conference Series to debut in Argentina, the only stop in South America

by September 25, 2017 General

Mining Investment South America, a global mining conference connecting miners, investors and service providers will be coming to South America for the first time in 2018. Given the importance of Argentina for the South American mining sector, Mining Investment South America will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina from 15 – 16 February 2018. This conference is part of the successful global Mining Investment conference series which is held across 12 countries in 5 continents from Americas to Europe, Africa and Asia.

Focus on Latin America, especially South and Central America

Mining Investment Conferences have always recognised the importance of Latin American Mining in the global mining landscape. Hence we started by focusing on the mining potential of Central American countries with Mining Investment Central America Conference in Panama from 2016. Over the last 2 years, this conference in Panama had managed to attract regional and global attendees from Panama, Mexico, Colombia, French Guiana, USA, Canada etc. In 2018, we will be shining the spotlight on South America and Mining Investment South America will be our second stop in Latin America and the only conference to be held in South America in our global conference calendar.

Connecting global miners, investors and service providers in Argentina

Mining Investment Conference Series, first launched in Singapore in 2015, have a proven track record of connecting international miners, investors and service providers. Given our extensive conference coverage across Asia, North America, Europe and Africa, we are well connected with global mining stakeholders. With Latin American countries such as Chile and Peru rapidly emerging as popular destinations for international mining investors, we believe it is the right time to refocus on Argentina. As the third largest economy in Latin America, it is timely to recalibrate Argentina as a focal point for South American mining investments.

Testimonials from past Conference Attendees from Latin America

Latin American countries have traditionally been well represented at our global Mining Investment Conferences, ranging from Government Ministers to miners and investors.

Javier Cordova, Ecuador’s Minister for Mining and Mining Investment Europe 2017 Conference speaker noted that ‘Mining Investment Conference is an important forum and we have decided to participate due to the high level of the organizers and of the invitees like mining companies and investment funds…thanks to the conference, it will help us in making certain decisions, which would improve the conditions of investments in Ecuador.’

Martin Valdes, Partner and Managing Director (Latin America) of Resource Capital Funds Chile and speaker at Mining Investment Central America 2017, said ‘I came to Mining Investment Conference to learn more about Central America and I thought it was a good conference to come and see what the different countries in Central America are doing. I met a lot of people from different places. Definitely a good conference to come’.
