Organized in Brazil by Infocast, in association with the Governments of State and City of Rio de Janeiro, the event will unite in the capital, Rio, key project developers, capital providers, contractors, decision-makers from the Brazilian Government, and international investors

RIO DE JANEIRO, February 15, 2011 - Investors from all over the world will convene March 22-24 at the Bolsa
do Rio Convention Center for RioInvestment 2011. The event, which is being
held for the first time, will have as its theme investment opportunities in
Rio de Janeiro in the years ahead, focusing primarily on sectors such as Oil
& Gas, Real Estate, Mining, Maritime Construction, Iron, Steel, Hedge funds,
Transportations, Roads, Ports, Hotels, Urban Mobility, Telecommunications,
nuclear and renewable energy and much more.

Following the recent growth in industrial construction and exports, real
estate expansion, and improved job market, the State of Rio de Janeiro has
begun drawing attention as an economic hub with major potential in Latin
. Even though chosen as the site of two important international
sporting events - the 2014 World Cup and 2016 Olympics Games - Rio is still
involved in a number of new infrastructure projects. Such a positive
atmosphere has led event organizers to expect more than US$90 billion in new
business over the next three years.

Organized by Infocast, the Government of the State of Rio de Janeiro and
City of Rio, RioInvestment 2011 will be the meeting place for companies and
investors wanting to learn more about such opportunities. Besides a full
slate of presentations and discussion panels that participants can attend,
there will also be networking opportunities in individual areas of interest.
