Santiago gears up for Expo Acero 2024

Santiago, DR.- Santiago de los Caballeros is gearing up to host one of the construction industry’s most significant events, Expo Acero Santiago 2024.

In a bid to elevate Santiago’s profile as a premier business tourism destination, Santiago Turístico Bureau, Visit Santiago, and Expo Acero have forged a strategic alliance aimed at advancing the city’s ongoing development.

Expo Acero stands as the Dominican Republic’s premier event in the metalworking industry, where top leaders gather to exchange innovative ideas, strategies, and future visions. Over three days, attendees can expect conferences, exhibitions, networking sessions, and panel discussions.

The Expo serves as a vital platform for knowledge exchange and commercial collaboration, drawing leading companies and experts from both national and international arenas.

Meanwhile, Visit Santiago, dedicated to promoting Santiago de los Caballeros as a MICE (Meetings, Incentives, Conferences, and Exhibitions) destination, recognizes the fair’s potential in attracting a diverse, high-level audience. In alignment with this vision, Visit Santiago has strategically aligned itself with the fair’s organizers.

The primary goal of this partnership is to position Santiago as an attractive destination for hosting corporate events, conventions, and specialized fairs.

Expo Acero stands to benefit from Visit Santiago’s support and expertise in tourism promotion and event management, thereby increasing visibility and participation in the fair and contributing to the city’s economic and cultural vibrancy.

Conversely, Visit Santiago will leverage the Expo Acero platform to showcase the city’s tourist attractions, infrastructure, and investment opportunities. Notably, the first edition of Expo Acero drew over 3,000 attendees and representatives from Panama, the United States, Spain, Mexico, Costa Rica, Colombia, Turkey, Venezuela, and Puerto Rico.

The presence of national and international visitors during the fair presents a unique opportunity to spotlight Santiago’s potential as both a tourist destination and a hub for business activities.

This alliance exemplifies how collaboration across sectors can drive a city’s development, cementing its status as a destination for world-class events and contributing to the economic and cultural advancement of the region.

The second edition of Expo Acero is scheduled to take place from September 20 to 22, 2024, at the UTESA Dominican Convention and Culture Center.
