LATINGALVA 2016

LATINGALVA is the leading international conference and exhibition on hot-dip galvanizing in Latin America. It provides a unique platform for companies from around the world to exchange information on the latest advances in technology and operating processes, environmental regulations, best practices and market trends. The conference is complemented by an exhibition of international equipment and service suppliers as well as plant visits. In addition, there is a social program and a sightseeing program for accompanying partners.

LATINGALVA is targeted at general galvanizing managers and engineers, designers of infrastructure projects, architects, others involved in general construction, suppliers to the industry, as well as public officers involved in infrastructure and public work development.

The event is held every two years in a different country in Latin America.

LATINGALVA 2016 will be held in Buenos Aires, Argentina, November 14-17. It will be organized by the International Zinc Association and LATIZA in association with the General Galvanizers Association of Argentina (AAGIC).

We look forward to welcoming you in Argentina.
