EXPO PACK México to alternate annual locations

The 30th Anniversary edition of EXPO PACK México, a tradeshow for the processing and packaging supply chain, opened with the announcement that show producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, will alternate its two Mexican shows every other year starting in 2017.

“2015 proved EXPO PACK Guadalajara has grown beyond a regional event,” said Gerardo Barajas, director of EXPO PACK. “Due to the continuing growth in the packaging and machinery markets in Western Mexico, it was time to bring the same types of resources offered in Mexico City to Guadalajara.”

Long recognized as one of the leading agro-industrial areas in Mexico, additional industrial growth in the State of Jalisco positions it as the nation’s second largest manufacturing center.

Jalisco is the heart of West Central Mexico, a region that accounts for 20 percent of Mexico’s GDP and includes the states of Aguascalientes, Colima, Guanajuato, Michoacán, Nayarit, San Luis Potosi, Sinaloa and Zacatecas. EXPO PACK Guadalajara will draw attendees from throughout the region looking for the latest technology to meet their growing demands.

The 2015 success of EXPO PACK Guadalajara proved to PMMI that the market was large enough to serve more than a regional show. In 2017, its objective will be to more than double the size and scope of EXPO PACK Guadalajara to over 7,500 square meters and 12,000 visitors, with the goal to grow in size and scope comparable to the Mexico City event.
