RESTON, VA— Despite breaking records annually for either attendance or exhibit space, EXPO PACK México never stops seeking ways to offer exhibitors and attendees a better event experience.
To improve accessibility and accommodate the show’s growing needs, show producer PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, will move the show to Expo Bancomer Santa Fe, May 17–20, 2016.
The modern, first-class venue on the western side of Mexico City offers exhibitors an open floor plan, high ceilings and over 32,400 square meters of exhibit space. Visitors will find the convention center easy to access with a modern transportation infrastructure connecting Santa Fe to the entire Mexico City area. For travelers coming from further distances, Toluca International Airport joins Mexico City International Airport as a convenient port of entry close to the new locale.
“PMMI strives to provide a quality experience to both our exhibitors and attendees and are always looking for ways to improve the show,” PMMI president and chief executive officer Charles D. Yuska. “As we began our due diligence on the facility we surveyed visitors at EXPO PACK México 2015 and found that 96 percent said they would attend EXPO PACK in the new venue.”
More than 25,000 visitors traditionally attend EXPO PACK México over the show’s four days, visiting more than 1,000 exhibitor companies.
Considered one of the newest and most modern districts in Mexico City, Santa Fe is home to several multinational corporations, including Grupo Bimbo, Chrysler Group Mexico, Microsoft, Sony, PepsiCo and FEMSA.
Santa Fe also offers 17 hotels within a five-minute drive, including six hotels within walking distance of Centro Bancomer. The area also boasts a wide range of restaurants, nightly entertainment and the second largest shopping center in Latin America with internationally renowned shops.
“PMMI is looking forward to moving the show to this modern facility and taking advantage of all the many conveniences located in and around the exhibition center,” says Yuska.
PMMI, The Association for Packaging and Processing Technologies, is a trade association representing more than 700 companies that provide a full range of processing and packaging machinery, materials, components and containers.
