Event Closed

This event ran May 3-5, 2017 and has now finished.

May 3-5, 2017 – Westin Lima Hotel & Convention Center, Lima, Peru

The 2017 edition of Metro LatAm will bring together 150 directors and senior engineers from metro operators, project leaders, policy makers and technology innovators from all over Latin America.

Metro operators from major cities across Latin America will exchange experiences, identify project management strategies and identify the technology solutions to improve capacity, frequency, customer experience and complete major infrastructure projects.


  • Metro LatAm brings together the senior decision makers from every country in Latin America, you can meet and work with every metro operator over three days.
  • In 2016 over 60% of our  transport event attendees were senior decision makers from operators, governments and public agencies – most of your onsite conversations will be with potential customers.
  • The event will feature two days of project focused presentations, providing a first-hand insight in to new business opportunities and operator requirements
  • Our two day technology exhibition will give you the chance to meet with some of the region’s most important innovators and project contracting companies.
  • Metro LatAm is an event at the heart of Latin America’s urban transport community and we work throughout the year with operators – this gives the networking drinks and dining sessions a warm, relaxed feel.
  • In 2017 we will also welcome international metro operators and global innovators, with senior decision makers joining us from Spain, Germany, China, United States and many others.


With a strong commitment to improving urban transportation and extensive investment in a broad range of solutions, Lima has been chosen as the host city for metro LatAm 2017. We have worked closely with the AATE (Autonomous Authority of the Electric Transport System), ProInversion and Linea 1 to prepare the two day conference and prepare the third day site visit; delivering an unparalleled insight into the strategies and technologies deployed on the network’s current and future lines.

  • Line 1 has been in operation since 2011 and has undergone continual upgrades and expansions during its period of service.
  • Line 2 is a huge, subterranean metro project that is currently under-construction and is projected to benefit 2.3 million citizens in the Peruvian capital.
  • Line 3 is another project lead by the AATE, which is current in the planning stage with bidding on the project expected to take place this year. The project will also be underground and will run for 38km.
  • Line 4 is currently under development, while Lines 5 and 6 are also at the initial planning stage.

While Medellin allowed attendees a valuable insight into integration strategies, Metro LatAm Lima will focus on the development of major projects and technology deployment.
