M&T Expo promotes event, in partnership with SICEPOT of Rio Grande do Sul, due to the importance of the southern region for the machinery market and for the country’s growth

Meeting discusses good prospects for investments in infrastructure for Rio Grande do Sul’s economy

Rio Grande do Sul is investing heavily to improve people’s lives. Since 2021, around R$2 billion has been invested in infrastructure works. In the area of road transportation, there are currently 50 projects underway on roads managed by the Autonomous Department of Highways (DAER). As a result, the state moved up nine places in terms of road quality in a survey carried out by the National Transportation Confederation (CNT).

“These funds bring good prospects for the construction sector and for the yellow line machinery and equipment market (earthmoving), paving and the movement of cargo and people, promoting new business opportunities for companies, providing new jobs for people and favoring social and economic development in the region,” says Rolf Pickert, CEO of Messe Muenchen do Brasil, promoter of M&T Expo – part of bauma NETWORK, Latin America’s leading trade fair for construction and mining machinery and equipment, which will hold a meeting in Porto Alegre on October 23.

The event will be held in partnership with the Union of the Road, Paving and Earthworks Construction Industry in General in the State of Rio Grande do Sul (SICEPOT-RS) and will be attended by the president, Rafael Sacchi, the CEO of Messe Muenchen do Brasil, Rolf Pickert, the Secretary of Transportation and Logistics of Rio Grande do Sul, Juvir Costella, the regional director of the Brazilian Association of Construction and Mining Technology (Sobratema), Rui Tuniolo, and the financial director of Badesul, Kalil Sehbe Neto. Places are limited and registration is now open: https://mm-br.activehosted.com/f/93 

According to Rafael Sacchi, as the main trade fair for the sector in Latin America, M&T Expo offers a great opportunity to find out what’s new in technology in the area of construction and mining equipment and enables users to assess the possibilities for expanding and renewing their fleets, based on knowledge of how the market is moving and what technologies are being used. “We at SICEPOT-RS support the fair and we are with them at this meeting on October 23,” he said.

With the theme of Infrastructure Investments in the southern region of the country for 2023/2024, the M&T Expo event will analyze the opportunities for the infrastructure area and its importance for the region, as well as assessing the development potential resulting from these investments.

The New PAC will direct investments to works and services worth around R$75.6 billion. More than 770 projects have been announced for the region, including those to be resumed and completed, as well as new projects and studies. Among the works are: duplication of BR 116 – Porto Alegre – Pelotas; construction of accesses to the new Guaíba Bridge; adaptation of the Porto Alegre – Novo Hamburgo stretch of BR 116; duplication of BR 290, Eldorado do Sul – Pântano Grande stretch; Arroio Jaguari dam; Arroio Taquarembó dam; and housing under the Minha Casa, Minha Vida Program.

The meeting is part of the 365 Project, an M&T Expo initiative that has already been to the states of São Paulo, Minas Gerais, Bahia, Paraná and Pará, with the aim of stimulating interaction between buyers and supply companies. M&T Expo 2024 has the institutional support of Sobratema and will be held from April 23 to 26, 2024, at the São Paulo Expo.

The fair will feature the launch of machinery, equipment, parts, components and services, as well as various attractions, such as the Demonstration Arena for the live presentation of exhibitors’ innovative equipment, which enables real-time interaction with visitors, the forum “ESG in Construction and Mining – Best practices for sustainability combined with competitiveness”, M&T Expo Capacita, with free courses offered by APELMAT to professionalize machine and equipment operators in various modalities, among others.
