Expo Prado: Business opportunity for British companies
The British Embassy will have a GREAT stand at Uruguay's most important agricultural trade show. Find out how to take part.
The GREAT stand will be part of the 110th Expo Prado in Uruguay
Expo Prado is the biggest agricultural event in Uruguay. Approximately 400,000 people visit the show every year– a mix of farmers, Uruguayan authorities, general public and trade exhibitors; mostly Uruguayan, but also companies from the region; and as well as the best in breed competitions and auctions, a lot of business networking gets done. The fair is strong on British breeds that have been imported over many years and highlight the strong agricultural links between the UK and Uruguay, which you can continue to build on.
What we did last year
Last year, for the first time in at least 15 years, the British Embassy organised a small UK pavilion at Expo Prado. This was done as a pilot and to gauge interest. Evaluation results proved it was a success. Therefore, we are participating again this year with a bigger, better and more innovative pavilion. Using the GREAT campaign, we will incorporate trade, tourism and education elements to promote the UK in Uruguay.
