The briefing was held in advance of Thursday’s Energy Dinner, where Chilean President Sebastián Piñera, along with Minister of Energy Rodrigo Alvarez, will be announcing energy policies to be implemented in Chile over the next 20 years, based on the final report to the Advisory Committee for the electric development, CADE, handed to the President on 16 November.
The meeting was led by General Ricardo Ortega Perrier, chairman of IFT ENERGY 2012, and Tom Kallman, President and CEO Kallman Worldwide (the event's organizer). Kallman attended along with his United States staff via videoconference. Indicating the comprehensive nature of the IFT ENERGY 2012 trade show and conference, among the organizations participating in this week’s planning meeting were: ACERA, Achee, ACHS, AMCHAM, ANESCO, Asociación Generadoras, Austrian Embassy, BNamericas, Camara Francochilena, CAMIT, CCBC, CER, Empresas Electricas, Industral Information Resourses, JETRO, Malaysian Embassy, Ministry of Energy of Chile, OLADE, PRO CHILE, Spanish Embassy, UBIFRANCE, UK Embassy, and the US Embassy.

The partners at the planning meeting will contribute to the various IFT ENERGY conference sessions and will continue to endorse and promote the event through their respective trade departments around the world.
