RETURNING THIS OCTOBER: THE ONLY EVENT IN LATIN AMERICA WHERE MINERS, FINANCIERS AND INVESTORS MEET
Hosted by GFC Media Group, the prestigious Mining & Investment Latin America Summit, exclusively designed to connect mining companies with financiers and investors, returns on October 23rd and 24th 2017 to the Westin Hotel, Lima, Peru.
Despite a slowdown of investment into the global mining sector in recent years, Latin America continues to develop as a prime location for mining investment, exploration and expansion. Attracting one third of the world’s mining investment, the continent continues to yield sources of iron ore, copper and gold, as well as silver, zinc, niobium, rhenium, molybdenum and lithium. Such plentiful natural resources generate considerable revenue and are a powerful driver for regional and national economic development.
The potential for investment in Latin America mining is well known by investors and bankers alike, who are looking to be well positioned for the 2018 industry surge. The Mining & Investment Latin America Summit 2017 will play a crucial role in mapping out the Latin America current opportunities and challenges; in the provision of constructive expert industry outlooks for 2018; and in promoting the industry’s continual development by connecting key industry decision-makers with willing counterparties, thus instigating vital business deals.
The summit is the only event in the region to focus on bringing together mining companies of all sizes with investors and financiers . This year, gain fresh insights from over 60 expert speakers and take away new business solutions and contacts, as the mining industry continues to recover. This unrivalled combination of senior government officials, miners and investors includes influential figures such as Victor Gobitz, Chief Executive Officer, Buenaventura; Robert Friedland, Executive Chairman and Founder, Invanhoe Mines; Joe Mazumdar, Co-Editor, Exploration Insights; Keith Spence, President, Global Mining Capital; John Price, Managing Director, Americas Market Intelligence; Javier Cordova Unda, Minister, Ministry of Mining, Republic of Ecuador; Daniel Meilán, Secretary of Mining, Ministry of Energy and Mines, Republic of Argentina; Jose Martínez, Chief Investment Officer, RIMAC Seguros; Fernando Manrique, Head of Equities, Prima AFP…and more.
The highly successful Miner Roadshow is another stand out feature of the event. Here the most exciting companies and projects in Latin America receive immediate feedback after being unveiled to both regional and international investors. In addition, new for this year, a workshop hosted by the International Financial Corporation (IFC) will outline effective CSR and Community Engagement strategies for miners as well as 1 on 1 Investor Meeting Roundtables, where participants can engage with investors to have more detailed discussions on what each side is looking for.
With over 650 attendees from 20 countries expected this year there is clearly tremendous scope for making advantegeous contacts in our business development-driven environment. Speaking of the 2016 summit, Luis Azevedo of Avanco Resources stated, “We were very impressed with attendance, the high level of presentations, and we were extremely surprised with the great networking opportunity we had here. I think the summit is important to miners and investors, and provides a clear view of what happens in the most important mining countries of South America.”
