UBM Launching Mexico City Manufacturing Expo in 2016


Mexico City – A broad-based trade show for Mexico’s manufacturing sector will be launched next year through a joint effort by two divisions of UBM.

Advanced Manufacturing Expo Mexico will debut November 15-17, 2016 at the Centro Banamex in Mexico City. Approximately 250 companies are expected to exhibit.

“Manufacturing is a rapidly growing sector in the Mexican economy, and Mexico City is the region with the most manufacturing facilities in the country,” said Roger Burg, vice president of strategic operations for California-based UBM Canon, which is partnering with UBM Mexico to create the new event.

Show organizers consider Mexico as a prime manufacturing market due to its high demand for imported machine tools and its proximity to the U.S., which outsources a high volume of manufacturing needs under the North American Free Trade Agreement (NAFTA). “There is a need for sourcing throughout the various stages of design and manufacturing, and our comprehensive event will connect world-class suppliers with decision makers.”

Advanced Manufacturing Expo Mexico will follow the UBM Canon playbook and include a large horizontal space divided up into six smaller co-located shows. Exhibitors will be recruited from design, processing, automation, and other specialties covering the entire manufacturing chain.

Packaging machinery manufacturers will have a new opportunity to reach their Mexican buyers. The new UBM show will take place in the off-year of the two biennial PACK Expo shows that are produced in Mexico by PMMI, The Association of Packaging and Processing Technologies.
