An increase in consumer demand for personalization and convenience products is driving the burgeoning Latin American processing and packaging market, according to the 2015 Global Packaging Study from PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies.
Now in its third decade as a premier processing and packaging trade show in Latin America, PMMI’s EXPO PACK México, May 17–20, (Mexico City, Expo Bancomer Santa Fe) serves these processing and packaging buyers representing multiple vertical markets. Newly located in the Santa Fe financial district of Mexico City, 90 percent of EXPO PACK México’s 204 thousand net square feet of exhibition space is sold.
“EXPO PACK México annually offers the most diverse networking forum in Mexico, providing direct access to leading international and domestic suppliers and strengthening the relationships with buyers in the processing and packaging industries,” says Gerardo Barajas, director, EXPO PACK México. “With our experience, we know that attendees each year look for solutions to reduce time and costs, to shorten their production cycle, increase production volume, and find original and innovative value-adding packaging designs.”
In 2015, processing and packaging professionals throughout Mexico, including buyers from Puebla, Queretaro, Guanajuato, Morelos and the State of Mexico attended EXPO PACK México. International buyers included attendees from Brazil, Colombia, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Peru and Venezuela, among others. In total, more than 25,000 domestic and international attendees from more than 30 countries are expected to visit more than 1,000 exhibitors from 20 different countries.
