As mining is a key area of opportunity between Australia and Mexico, ANZMEX is collaborating with AUSTRADE in order to promote the Australian mining sector at the Expo and to help build / expand commercial relationships for the benefit of all.  In addition to a number of Australian mining companies already active in Mexico who may be attending Expo Minera independently, there will be a group of seven or eight Australian specialist mining technology and services companies attending the event as part of an Australian stand.

Some of the activities at the Expo which we believe will be of interest to Australian companies, and companies wishing to connect with Australian companies include the following:


Australian Pavilion - 16th - 19th October Mundo Imperial stand 132


- a focal point for contacts, networking and distribution of promotional material

- all members and friends attending the Expo are encouraged to drop by and meet the team

- it is also possible that promotional materials for companies unable to attend the Expo could be distributed by the Austrade team 

           - Australian Educational Institutions - Austrade will be pleased to incorporate promotional materials relating to specific mining programmes.
