WHY LATAM

As a new middle class rises in the bigger economies in South America, global brands are looking for growth opportunities in the region. This has led to an increasing desire to understand the market.

With the mobile device as the primary conduit for consumers in this emerging region to engage with each other and the world around them, digital channels (more specifically smartphones, tablets, and social media) have quickly emerged as the best means to engage consumers. Local insight professionals are challenged with finding ways for brands to generate insights faster, cheaper, and better to be able to leverage the opportunity in LATAM. These two factors have come together to generate remarkable innovation in the region.

Historically, South America has grown from the bottom up. We see that trend repeating today. As consumers and organizations become aware of how technology can improve the way they work and live, innovation becomes paramount – not just for insight professionals but also for brands, governments, and other entities that also play a role in improving people’s lives.

Tips

Electricity: The electrical current in Chile is 220 Volts and 50 Hertz. Three-terminal electrical adapters are not common. We recommend that you have your own current transformer.

Transportation: Santiago has an extensive public transport network with Subway and Bus, which are safe and easily to found in high traffic areas; taxis are also safe and reliable.

Water: The water is generally safe for consumption. However, it’s recommended that you drink bottled water for the first few days.

Natural Dangers: Chile is a seismic country. In the event of an earthquake or strong tremor, remain calm. If you’re inside a building, remain inside. If you’re outside, remain outside. Entering or leaving building can only lead to accidents. If you are inside of a building, seek out strong structures – under a table or bed, underneath a doorway, next to a pillar, master wall, or in a corner – and protect your head. Never flee hurriedly towards an exit or use an elevator. If you find yourself on the street, watch out for electrical wires, cornices, glass and falling tiles.
