Clarion Events North America has signed a collaboration agreement with Industrial Fabrics Association International (IFAI) to be a part of Clarion’s annual ExpoProducción event in Mexico City.
The collaboration will include an IFAI Pavilion and Conference to be held within the show, beginning with the February 2014 edition.
“IFAI is a world-renowned organization with a long history of producing successful events,” said David Audrain, president and CEO of Clarion Events North America. “We are extremely pleased to have them partner with us in the expansion of our ExpoProducción show in Mexico City.
This new collaboration also will allow the two organizations to explore further cooperation in the development of other textile events in the Americas and globally, according to show officials.
“There is a great deal of interest in Mexico and Central America for the types of specialty fabrics and related products provided through the IFAI members,” Audrain said.
He added, “The addition of the IFAI Specialty Fabrics Pavilion and Conference as part of ExpoProducción will bring a new market and group of decision makers to the event thereby enhancing the scope and appeal of the trade show.”
The second edition of ExpoProducción will held February 5 -7 at the World Trade Center in Mexico City.
“IFAI is very excited to announce this collaboration with Clarion in Mexico, and for the potential opportunities that lie ahead,” said Todd Lindemann, vice president, IFAI.
