The good news for the region is Silversea’s recent decision to abandon its Ushuaia operations and begin operating from the Chilean ports of Punta Arenas and Puerto Williams to Antarctica.
It is an important step to open the maritime frontier for missions and tourism and they are showing us a step ahead of Ushuaia. However, we cannot lose sight of the fact that Ushuaia is preparing for the Antarctic cause, and for this, it is improving its port and strengthening its logistics to better serve each of the expeditions visiting this continent.
Namely, we cannot stand idly by in celebrating today the determination to occupy our ports for this type of tourism, but we must prepare for what is to come.

Next, there is a need for a large meeting center so that in the future we can receive delegations of the various International Antarctic Programs.
As you will realize, it is a huge opportunity and it is a huge offer that we can get. Why not consider the Antarctic International Exposition? , where anything from a pin to a container carrier is displayed, where we can provide the services required by the various Antarctic programs. It will be a practically unique opportunity that we cannot miss for 2024.
