Atlanta, GA — Exposition Development Company, Inc. (ExpoDevCo) and E.J. Krause & Associates (EJK) have announced they will partner to produce the 4th edition of ExpoProducción Mexico, which will be held March 29-31, 2017, at the World Trade Center in Mexico City, Mexico.  ExpoProducción was launched in 2013 by the ExpoDevCo team in partnership with Clarion Events. ExpoDevCo bought out the Clarion portion of ownership, and will now run the show as a 50-50% partners with EJK out of their office in Mexico City. 

The most recent ExpoProduccion was held in 2015 and attracted 81 exhibiting companies and 2,398 attendees. “After discussion with key exhibitors, we made the decision to set the show cycle for alternate years, in the odd years,” said David Audrain, CEO & Partner, ExpoDevCo. 

“We are very excited to be co-organizer of ExpoProducción in Mexico,” said Paul St. Amour, Vice President, Latin America for EJK, which produces more than 40 events in 14 different industries. “The textile industry has always been vitally important to the industrial base in Mexico. We are certain that by continuing to work closely with our exhibitors, our industry partners and media, ExpoProducción 2017 will be a resounding success.” 

ExpoProducción serves the apparel, home and technical textiles industries in Mexico and Central America. The 2017 show will have a larger international exhibitor presence, more country pavilions and a redeveloped conference program that will touch on every segment of the textile industry. The show will also offer new business matchmaking and customized marketing programs to help exhibitors reach their target markets.

“We feel confident that our partnership with E.J. Krause will enable the show to grow far beyond what it has already achieved in its first three editions,” said Audrain. “The 2017 edition will be a very strong year for ExpoProducción and for the market in Mexico and Central America.”
