Exponor Chile 2022
In June 2022, Valenza Engineering had the opportunity to attend Exponor 2022 in Chile, South America.
We partnered with Andes Agile to be our feet on the ground to create new business opportunities, strengthen relationships, discover new gadgets and investigate the newest technological developments.
What is Exponor?
Exponor is a four-day International Miner Industry Exhibition that brings together local and international players from the mining and energy world. The exhibition has become a tradition for the national and international mining industry. It gathers all sector actors, including big and small mining companies, service and supplies providers, clients, entrepreneurs and central and local authorities.
This is recognised as a significant technical event due to its proximity to the major mines of Antofagasta, where 54% of copper is produced at a national level, climbing its way to the top as a leader in the production of other metallic and non-metallic minerals.
Exponor also provides a unique opportunity to reach critical decision-makers under one roof. Thirteen of the most important mining companies in the world have a presence and projects in Antofagasta, including BHP Billiton, Anglo American, Barrick, Teck, Codelco, Yamana, KGHM, SQM and Antofagasta Minerals.
The show included a diverse program of activities such as technical talks, where exhibitors detail their latest technologies; innovations and launch of new products; seminars, where you can learn strategic information about challenges; investments and industry projects; and visits to mining sites, where exhibitors see operational areas and learn about the challenges of important mining, industrial and energy companies.
Benefits of Exponor
Visiting Exponor was a strategic source of information on future investments and an opportunity to share on the ground with companies and exhibitors. It was also an opportunity to get to know first-hand the latest technologies for the industry and build networks. This is critical in a dynamic area like mining, which is a sector that must constantly adapt to the challenges that seek to extract low-grade deposits, design new processes and techniques, promote new use for metals and include better practices for environmental management.
The five benefits Valenza Engineering gained by attending Exponor 2022:
- Raised awareness
Exponor was an excellent opportunity to raise brand awareness among industry professionals and key decision-makers.
- Forged relationships
Meeting other industry-related companies can assist us to enter vertical markets we might not break into otherwise.
- Highly targeted leads
People who attend a trade show do so because they are actively looking to buy the right products for their needs. Valenza Engineering made the best use of all leads gathered.
- Competitor Analysis
Exponor showcased the strategies and best offerings of all the top brands in the industry. Valenza Engineering noticed what other companies were doing to attract customers and carried out competitor analysis.
Valenza Engineering made use of the myriad of educational sessions on offer. Keeping up to date with the latest developments and technologies enabled us to plot a course to be competitive.
Would We Attend in the Future?
Valenza Engineering aims to join the 40,000+ visitors in person for the next event in 2024.
