Small Hydro Latin America is the only event in the region which is specifically catered towards small hydro power. Therefore, this event will offer an unrivalled collection of speakers and presentations that are entirely invested and focused on the development of small hydro projects in the Latin America region.
Hydro-electricity projects are set to balloon in Latin America with 1.6 billion dollars worth of projects coming online in the next few years. Arena International’s annual Small Hydro Latin America conference continues to congregate the leading stakeholders from across the sector to keep you at the forefront of this rapidly-expanding industry.

The format for the event is specifically designed to optimise networking opportunities, allowing you to meet project developers and managers, financial investors, governmental bodies, regulators, EPCs and service providers.

Two full days of presentations and discussions will also build a comprehensive strategy for project design, delivery and management, citing personal experience from the people who know best.
