Uruguay Fair for UK Universities 2018, 2019 & 2020
2020 | The British Pavilion and the 3rd LATAM Virtual Fair
Knowmads third Virtual Fair took place between the 16th and the 25th of September 2020, with the added exposure of presenting at Expo Prado as The British Embassy in Montevideo gave Knowmads a booth, taking part of their "Education is GREAT" campaign. Expo Prado has over 450,000 visitors every year, which meant a fantastic opportunity to gain exposure and reach a large number of potential students in Uruguay and around the region.
Expo Prado is the most considerable livestock fair and cultural event in Uruguay, held every September over 12 days. It has been running for more than 100 years and still is the farmer's first choice to present their best-breeding animals in competitions and to engage in business.
Nowadays it is has expanded from its roots as a livestock event, to one that showcases products, brands, culture, food and entertainment not only from Uruguay but also from around the world.
The pavilion is a platform for British companies and represetatives to promote their products and services to more than 82,000 visitors from diﬀerent parts of Uruguay.
In order to reach a larger audience and follow the sanitary measures in place, in 2020 the British Pavilion took place virtually.
Through a specially created website, it was possible to carry out virtual tours. We oﬀered participants the chance to join the Pavilion's website with a 360 virtual tour of their stand, which included an eCommerce option and/or the possibility to include links to their website.
