Argos Chile has vast experience in organising international business meetings. Over the past few years, it has been responsible for organise different foreign business meetings, especially American and European, taking place in our country, in order to explore new markets in Latin America and using Chile as the country entering this market. In this context, we have organised many meetings with groups of Chilean investors in a wide range of areas including food, construction, industry, engineering, non-conventional renewable energies, etc.

Argos Chile has a large database and number of contacts with Chilean investors that it has contacted for different meetings, achieving quality agendas. This experience with foreign businessmen allowed it to acquire knowledge on strong and weak points generally presented by this type of meetings. What it matters is to identify the client's interests and the specific things that might bring interest to Chilean investors in order to create a real business opportunity to be formalised between both parties.

It is important to mention that, in addition to the commercial experience mentioned above in Argos, we were responsible for organising the Hispanic/Chilean meeting on behalf of the Navarre Chamber of Commerce, which is celebrated every year in Santiago de Chile in November. In said meeting, attended by over 200 Spanish businessmen from many different business areas, we were responsible for organising the event and especially for scheduling meetings with over 40 businessmen at the same time. Finally, we would like to stress the important cooperation of the attorneys' studio, García Magliona & Cía, through its experience in supplying commercial counselling to national and foreign companies and providing greater support and advice for foreign businessmen wishing to do business in this country. The support provided by this attorneys' studio can be very important for increasing your contacts and connections with the Chilean business world as it is legal advisor to almost all the country's financial institutions. These are the ones they know and have direct contact with the country's leading investment groups.
