Rio to host international investment event next month

Exploring business opportunities in Brazil is a good excuse to go to Rio next month for the Rio Investment 2011.

Investors from all over the world are expected in Rio from March 22-24 for Rio Investment 2011. A meeting place for companies and investors wanting to learn more about opportunities related with  upcoming major events such as the Olympics Games and the World Cup. Besides a full slate of presentations and discussion panels that participants can attend, there will also be networking opportunities in areas of interest.

Turning point for the city

Rio emerges from decades in a downhill mode. After a series of populist governors who drove industries out of the state and made the city a reference of urban violence and chaos things start to look brighter for the cariocas. Public governance and planing associated with a good economic phase for the country has led to a more optimist mind-set.  The ambition is to become an economic hub with major potential in Latin America.

Highlight sectors on the event

Oil & Gas, Real Estate, Mining, Maritime Construction, Iron, Steel, Hedge funds, Transportations, Roads, Ports, Hotels, Urban Mobility, Telecommunications, nuclear and renewable energy and much more.

This is the first time the city hosts an international event to promote investments.  It is an initiative of  both the municipal and state governments.

The extra mile

Planning is crucial when entering a complex market such as Brazil.  Most of my consulting activity is to help foreign companies making this move with a strategic market intelligence that takes into account the local ethos.  It has been key to identify the right partner  and assess opportunities and risks. Don’t hesitate in dropping me a line if you have further questions or a specific demand regarding this subject.
