PERUMIN: Peru September 2019
Planning is underway
Please note that planning is currently underway for this trade mission. The information provided below is indicative only and the location and dates may be subject to change pending feedback from expressions of interest.
Global Victoria is planning to support a delegation of Victorian METS companies and education institutions at PERUMIN to be held in Arequipa, Peru from 16 to 20 September 2019.
PERUMIN is the second largest mining event in the Americas. The event includes a trade show, conference and a myriad of satellite networking events. It is the most important gathering for the Peruvian mining community. PERUMIN has been central to the successful market entry and expansion strategies of many Australian METS firms.
Thanks to its location in Arequipa, the capital of Peru’s southern mining belt, PERUMIN effectively captures senior executives, mine superintendents, procurement managers and technical staff for the duration of the event.
In 2017, PERUMIN attracted more than 65,000 visitors and delegations from over 10 different countries.
Peru has positioned itself as Latin America’s best performing mining market.
It is the second largest producer of copper in the world and is one of the world’s four top producers for silver, lead, zinc, tin and molybdenum. It also boasts important gold, phosphates and uranium deposits. Over the past 10 years, high rates production have attracted US$60 billion of inbound investment into Peru’s mining sector.
With a pipeline of 49 major mine projects estimated at over US$59 billion to be developed over the next few years, Peru offers considerable opportunities for Victorian companies.
Arequipa is known as "The White City" because it was built almost entirely in ashlar. It is located 2325 metres high in the desert mountains of the Andes and is surrounded by 3 volcanoes the Misti, the Chachani and the Picchu Picchu. Without a doubt, it is the second most important city in the country, being currently an axis of economic development in southern Peru.
What types of businesses should apply?
Victorian METS firms and education institutions providing innovative solutions to enhance productivity are encouraged to apply.
This could include, but is not limited to:
- mining consumables
- safety, environment, water management and energy efficiency
- consulting/engineering services
- technical skills training courses.
The Victorian Government aims to provide support by subsidising conference passes (these are expensive, limited passes available), hosting and providing access to key networking events and information sessions.
Once we have a clear understanding of the companies joining the mission, we may also arrange tailored business meetings and round tables with local mining executives, workshops and other activities that align with the event.
What's not included?
Victorian Government will not pay for airfares, accommodation, ground transport or meals outside of official activities.
Date: 16 to 20 September 2019
Location: Arequipa, Peru
Applications close: 23 July 2019
Accommodation in Arequipa
Accommodation is extremely limited in Arequipa during PERUMIN. Companies wishing to participate must book accommodation as soon as possible or risk not finding any options closer to the date.
We strongly recommend you obtain confirmation of your reservations in writing and by phone from the hotel. Our team will be based at Selina Arequipa – they may have a few rooms still available.
