ExpoProducción Has Successful Debut
"We are extremely pleased with the participation and attendance at this first edition of ExpoProducción," said David Audrain, president and CEO, Clarion Events North America. "The escalating interest from the industry ensures that next year's event will be significantly larger with attendance growth from all of Mexico and Central America."
Products and services exhibited at the show, which took up more than 5,500 square meters of floor space, included fibers and yarns; fabrics; nonwovens; findings/trims; cutting and sewing equipment/supplies; textile machinery; computer software/information technology; contract manufacturing; logistics services; research and development products; associations/academia; and publications.
ExpoProducción also offered a concurrent three-day, comprehensive educational program that included more than 14 sessions — many of which had standing-room only attendance, according to organizers — covering topics such as the latest research and development in cutting and sewing; international trade updates; advancements in military, protective and safety apparel production; an apparel industry market update; and the creation of design and trademarks.
The show was supported by the Cámara Nacional de la Industria del Vestido (CANAINVE); Clover, S.C.-based Synthetic Yarn and Fiber Association; Washington-based National Council of Textile Organizations; Textile World and its sister publication Textiles Panamericanos; and MexCostura, a magazine covering apparel, textiles and fashion in Mexico and Central America.
The next edition of ExpoProducción will take place Feb. 5-7, 2014, at the World Trade Center in Mexico City.
