Increased demand changes plans for EXPO PACK Guadalajara 2015

With booth space in high demand, PMMI announces that it will change the dates for the EXPO PACK Guadalajara 2015 to March 18-20 to make more space available to exhibiting companies.

“EXPO PACK Guadalajara 2013 surpassed everyone’s expectations,” said Charles D. Yuska, president & CEO, PMMI. “And the 2015 show is already headed down the same path, a full two years before opening.”

EXPO PACK Guadalajara launched in February 2013, drawing more than 10,000 attendees. Over 300 exhibitors showed their latest innovations for the Mexican market over 3,200 net square meters (34,519 net square feet) of exhibit space.

“EXPO PACK Guadalajara 2013 was such a success, we had already sold 68 percent of exhibit space for 2015 within a week of the show’s closing,” Yuska added. “We knew demand would be strong for a show in Mexico’s western region, but these results show just how much opportunity there was to bring a world class event to Jalisco.”

And as Guadalajara continues to grow, PMMI is expecting the momentum to continue with EXPO PACK México 2013 (June 18-21; Mexico City, Mexico).  The show is expected to draw 25,000 attendees to an event that features more than 18,000 net square meters (193,750 net square feet) of exhibit space.

EXPO PACK México 2013 is 90 percent sold and features a greater presence for PMMI members than past shows in a larger, sold out PMMI Pavilion.  Learn more about EXPO PACK Guadalajara and EXPO PACK Mexico at www.expopack.com.mx
