IDB launches virtual business community for small and medium-size Latin American companies specializing in infrastructure

Trade Americas & ConnectAmericas Expo will bring together hundreds of companies from the sector on September 3-4 in Miami 

Latin American and Caribbean countries are expected to invest more than $1.5 trillion in infrastructure projects over the next 10 years, opening up many opportunities for companies that provide goods and services in the sector.

In order to facilitate the flow of information about these prospects, the Inter-American Development Bank (IDB) and the Latin Trade Group are organizing “Trade Americas & ConnectAmericas Expo: Building the Americas,” which will be held September 3-4 in Miami, Florida.

During this event the IDB will launch a virtual business community for the infrastructure sector, as part of the recently created platform ConnectAmericas. Here, businesses will find partners and providers of goods and services, up-to-date information on various tender offers for infrastructure projects around the region, learning tools for small- and medium-sized companies that wish to go international, and information about sources of financing.

The seminar will be attended by government and business leaders as well as contractors, finance companies and businesses that offer goods and services in the infrastructure sector. There will be discussion panels on opportunities to invest in projects involving renewable energy, energy efficiency, transport and logistics, urban infrastructure, public-private partnerships and financial innovations.
