Aluminium Brazil 2014, along with ExpoAluminio takes place 1 to 3 April 2014, at Centro de Exposições Imigrantes, São Paulo.
Just a few weeks before the kick-off of the World Cup in São Paulo in the summer of 2014, the international aluminium industry will gather there for Aluminium Brazil 2014 from 1 to 3 April. Like the debut event two years ago, the second edition of the trade fair will take place once again as part of ExpoAlumínio, the most important industry meeting of the aluminium sector in South America. A total of 170 exhibitors are expected for ExpoAlumínio, from CBA, the largest aluminium producer in Brazil, to key global players such as Aloca, Hydro, Novelis, Pyrotech and Wagstaff. Most of the international exhibitors will be consolidated under the umbrella of Aluminium Brazil, which accompanies ExpoAlumínio. Some 50 exhibitors from Europe, the Middle East and Asia will be represented there.
The largest exhibitor nation this year – behind Brazil – will be China. ExpoAlumínio is organised every other year by Reed Exhibitions Alcantara Machado and the Brazilian aluminium association ABAL. The trade fair supporting programme will include the 6th International Aluminium Conference and the International Seminar for Aluminium Recycling. More than 12,000 visitors attended the previous ExpoAlumínio event two years ago. With the inclusion of Aluminium Brazil in its portfolio, Reed Exhibitions Deutschland has expanded the global activities of the Aluminium World Trade Fair and now provides globally operating enterprises a targeted point of entry into the Latin-American market.
Brazilian aluminium market stabilises
Currently, Brazil ranks eighth on the list of aluminium-producing countries. Brazil remains an important emerging market, even though industrial growth there has slowed recently. In fact, activities within the Brazilian sector have actually started to accelerate again in October. Accordingly, the Brazilian industry association ABAL forecast growth of over 5% in aluminium consumption for manufacturing in its latest market survey for 2013. Above all, robust demand for roller and extrusion products destined for the transportation, building and construction markets has contributed to this growth, ABAL says.
