International companies take advantage of opportunities in Mexico
Reston, Va.; May 1, 2015 — Mexico continues to be an attractive export destination for international suppliers, satisfying 80-85 percent of its processing and packaging technology demand with imported machinery, according to PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies. The United States is one of the top three suppliers of processing and packaging machinery to Mexico, along with Italy and Germany.
For the 26,000 professionals expected to attend EXPO PACK México 2015 (June 16–19, Centro Banamex, Mexico City), convening with these international exhibitors remains one of the show’s signature benefits. Buyers from throughout Latin America attend to update their technical knowledge, see the latest trends and advance their operations.
Considered the leading event for processing and packaging in Latin America for 30 years, EXPO PACK México offers the most advanced technological solutions from more than 1,000 exhibitors, from 20 countries.
“This year, EXPO PACK México will again feature a PMMI pavilion, which brings together PMMI Member companies from U.S., Canada and Mexico, in addition to international pavilions from Argentina, Brazil, Colombia, China, Spain, France, Guatemala, India and Italy,” said Gerardo Barajas, director of EXPO PACK México.
The PMMI pavilion will feature 86 member companies and is near capacity at over 2,130 square meters.
In addition to showcasing technology, suppliers and professional services, the show is the center of Packaging Week. Events include the National Congress of the Mexican Packaging Association (AMEE), the Envases Estelares Awards and Sustainable Company Awards, a full conference program by AMEE and the Mexico City debut of the Innovation Stage.
Over the show’s four days, decision-makers in the food and beverage, pharmaceutical, personal care, graphic arts, chemical, electronics, textiles and automotive sectors, among others, will discover a range of technologies for every processing and packaging challenge.
