Clarion Events North America Debuts Apparel/Sewn Products Show in Mexico
On the heels of the recent announcement of the launch of the Atlanta Foodservice Expo, Clarion Events North America, a division of U.K.-based Clarion Events, is quickly continuing to expand its portfolio with the launch of another event – ExpoProducción - a trade show primarily for the apparel and sewn products manufacturing industry.
ExpoProducción, scheduled to debut Feb. 6-8 at the World Trade Center in Mexico City, will bring together leading companies from the equipment and machinery sector, along with both domestic and international textile manufacturers, technical textiles and fiber manufacturers, and all areas of service and parts suppliers.
“This show will be the only one of its kind in Mexico and will focus on delivering superior value and assistance to the garment and sewn products manufacturing market in this important and growing region,” said David Audrain, Clarion North America’s president.
Besides the showfloor, the event will feature an educational program available to attendees at no cost, and some high-level conference programming will be offered at reduced costs to members of supporting organizations.
The garment manufacturing industry in Mexico is seeing significant growth as domestic demand increases and orders from the U.S. move back to Mexico.
Before the event has even opened its doors, local industry associations already are offering support.
"I would like to inform you that on February 6 to 8 of 2013 at the World Trade Center in Mexico City, ExpoProducción, a machinery, textile and trim event, will take place, which is something that our industry needs,” said Lic. Sergio López De La Cerda, president of the Cámara Nacional de la Industria del Vestido (CANAINVE).
He added, “We wish the organizers a great success, and we invite all the manufacturers to visit ExpoProducción that without a doubt will be of great benefit to our industry.”
Mexico is seeing a strong resurgence in production tied to American brands and retailers, and ExpoProducción will be the hub bringing the manufacturers and their suppliers together each year, according to Audrain.
“Mexico City is not only the heart of Mexico and the headquarters for most of the major producers, but it is also a pivotal location to bring the whole Central American and Caribbean industry together,” he added.
Besides the Atlanta Foodservice Expo, ExpoProduccion joins The Navy League of the United States’ annual “Sea-Air-Space” Exposition and the Counter Terror Expo in Clarion Events North America’s burgeoning portfolio.
