METALFORM Mexico Upgraded for 2006
Tuesday, March 07, 2006
New features, including a pavilion and promotional services, have been added to the 2006 METALFORM Mexico tradeshow to address the needs of Mexico’s manufacturing base as well as requests from exhibitors. METALFORM Mexico—the only Mexican event focused on stamping, tool and die, forming, fabricating and assembly—will be held at the Centro Banamex in Mexico City from November 7-9, 2006.
METALFORM Mexico has incorporated a new tooling technology pavilion into this year’s show. The pavilion will provide a one-stop resource for parts and assembly manufacturers.
The show also takes a more aggressive approach in supporting equipment sales before the show via a dynamic and interactive Show Special website. All exhibitors can develop a targeted landing page to promote their equipment. Potential buyers and attendees will be able to access this website four months prior to the show.
METALFORM Mexico alternates each year between Mexico City and Monterrey, effectively covering the entire Mexican metalforming market. The show is sponsored by the Precision Metalforming Association. For more information, visit www.metalform.com
