Ten months before its debut in the annual rotation with EXPO PACK Mexico, EXPO PACK Guadalajara 2017 (June 13-15, Expo Guadalajara, Jalisco) is already three times the size of 2015, according to show producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.
Not only has the show grown to more than 400 exhibitors covering nearly 13,000 net square meters of exhibit space (140,000 net square feet), but the number of international exhibitors bringing the latest technologies has doubled since 2015.
“The diversity of exhibitors who have already signed on for EXPO PACK Guadalajara and the buyers demand for new technology confirms that Western Mexico needed an international show to meet its expanding markets,” says Gerardo Barajas, Director EXPO PACK Mexico. “EXPO PACK Guadalajara is truly a place where the processing and packaging supply chain comes together for the latest innovations and solutions.”
International pavilions reserved for EXPO PACK Guadalajara currently include Brazil, France, Spain, Argentina, Italy, China, Canada and the United States.
Locally EXPO PACK Guadalajara has the support of the leading national and regional trade associations, including The Mexican Packaging Association (AMEE), Food Industry Chamber of Jalisco (CIAJ), The Mexican Chamber of Processed Food (CANAINCA), The Mexican Chamber of Perfumes, Cosmetics & Toiletries (CANIPEC), The Mexican Chamber of Pharmaceutical Industry (CANIFARMA), National Chamber of Industry Graphic Arts (CANAGRAF), National Chamber of Metal Containers (CANAFEM) and Manufacturing Industry Chamber of Jalisco (CAREINTRA).
“As with all EXPO PACK Mexico events, we are working hard to bring the best edition of EXPO PACK Guadalajara in 2017 by identifying the specific needs of key industries and fulfilling the market demands with the latest packaging and processing solutions,” says Barajas.
