The heat of InterLumi Panama extends to Costa Rica


InterLumi Panama is working unremittingly to increase its recognition and influence not only domestically, but also internationally. Being part of the overseas activities of InterLumi Panama 2018, a promotional event was conducted in San Jose, Costa Rica on 30 November 2017, with the purpose of presenting the show to more overseas industry professionals and enabling them to have face-to-face communication with the show organizer.


Thanks to the support of InterLumi’s partner Costa Rican Chamber of Foreign Trade (CRECEX by its Spanish acronym), the Embassy of Panama in Costa Rica and the sponsor SELS LED, the promotional event achieved a great success with the participation of around 50 attendees from lighting, electricity and energy sectors respectively, such as ACESOLAR, Electroval, Global Lighting Solutions, El Eléctrico, Mundo Iluminación, LED Verde and Grupo Solaris; the last two companies have already confirmed their participation in 2018 edition.


Considering the importance of Costa Rica to our show, we came here not just for a simple canvassing. At the forefront of this presentation, we think it has to embody the value of participation either as an exhibitor or a visitor. By sharing the up-to-date progress and new features of the InterLumi Panama 2018, attendees have realized more and more benefits of such an outstanding lighting show in the region and are confident of its quality and International influence", said by Mr. Rafael Galue, Business Development Manager of America Expo Group.


“We made really good deals at InterLumi Panama 2017, and we believe by participating InterLumi, we will be able to make more new contacts,” expressed by Mr. Alexander Donoso, Product Manager of Costa Rican branch of SELS (Smart Era Lighting Systems) LED USA, the sponsor of this event. Mr. Donoso did an amazing product presentation during which he showed SELS LED’s new line of photovoltaic LED lighting. It is designed for the consumer who values high quality, sustainable lighting solutions for their home and business.


Costa Rica has been one of InterLumi’s targeted countries since the very beginning of the show promotion. Last edition, Costa Rica topped overseas visitor flow, accounting 18% of the total visitors that came abroad, among which CRECEX carried a delegation of 8 purchasing companies and 3 governmental agencies including Administrative Board of the Municipal Electric Service of Cartago and Costa Rican Institute of Electricity. “For InterLumi 2018, with the deepened partnership, CRECEX is going to bring over 20 buyers from Costa Rica and will offer them preferential prices for flight tickets and hotels, as well as access to Efficient Lighting Forum and other concurrent activities”, stated by the Director of CRECEX Mr. Jose Antonio Salas.


The companies that attended the promotional event showed great interest in InterLumi Panama 2018. These positive feedback demonstrates their trust in the show and in this growing market. With the increase in both exhibitors and visitors, InterLumi is certainly going to spread the heat to more surrounding countries and have a greater edition in 2018. The show will be held from 11 to 13 July at ATLAPA Convention Center in Panama City. Stay tuned for more information about the market and the show in the coming months.
