British Pavilion 2016

Following the previous edition’s success, the British Embassy will be present for the fourth consecutive year at Expo Prado from 6 - 17 September, with a Pavilion centred on business, education, culture, gastronomy and entertainment.

The Pavilion will host stands of British and Uruguayan brands with ties to the United Kingdom such as Royal County of Berkshire Polo Club, FCR-DAS -a company that specialises in quality management certifications-, water filters Doulton, JCB -world leader in construction machinery-, and MINI, who will have the opportunity to promote their products and services among an estimated 75.000 visitors. The traditional English pub, Craft Beer Bar, will be offering typical British beer, and the Tea House, hosted once again by Nuez y Chocolate, will be serving delicious meals throughout the day, including not only the classic five o’clock tea, but also breakfast, lunch and snacks.

The British Council will be taking part with a stand focused on education and will organise activities related to the 20th anniversary of the publication of the first Harry Potter book. EF -world leader in international education- will be promoting their student exchange programs to the United Kingdom, as well as their English courses.

The Falkland Islands will be represented once again by a delegation that will continue to develop commercial and cultural ties with Uruguay, besides promoting tourism and agriculture.

For the second time, the Embassy is supporting HackathonAGRO, a competition where multidisciplinary teams made up of entrepreneurs, academics and agricultural experts join forces with the sole aim of resolving challenges that the Uruguayan agricultural sector faces through the use of technology.

British or Uruguayan companies linked to the United Kingdom who are interested in participating in the Pavilion may contact the Embassy through expoprado@fco.gov.uk

A group of British companies will be visiting Uruguay in a trade mission from 5 - 8 September.
