Insight on the innovation that mining demands in a constant process of changes
The expectations of this XV edition go hand in hand with the compliance of the industry´s requirement in terms of permanent optimization of the productive and logistic processes, such as providing the best opportunities in technology and sourcing the solutions through the more than 1.300 supplying companies from the 35 countries through the world.
Innovation will be the main driver of this XV EXPOMIN 2018, the most important mine tradeshow worldwide, that will focus on leading edge technologies, market trends and a sound debate of the most relevant sector discussions.
This new version, will be hosted in Espacio Riesco between the following April 23rd through 27th of April, and expected to receive over 1,300 exhibiting companies of which 50% come from over 35 countries.

Chile is the country with the most developed mining industry in Latin America, being a world reference in the application of new technologies, with highly sophisticated operations, with mines that have been reinvented as a result of their size and geological and mineralogical complexity “.
In its 25 years of history, EXPOMIN has been the reflection of an industry that has been in constant growth and innovation.
Parada highlights that EXPOMIN 2018 is carried out within a framework of a measured confidence with healthier copper prices, an increase in sectorial employment and in the framework of mining contribution to the socioeconomic development of the country, which marks a trend towards a new cycle of growth.
