METALFORM Mexico Receives Recognition

Friday, May 12, 2006
 
The 2005 METALFORM Mexico tradeshow has been recognized as one of the best industrial shows in Mexico by Cintermex, the Monterrey facility that hosted the event last September. Sponsored by the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA) and Trade Show Consulting Inc., METALFORM Mexico showcased metal stamping, tool and die, forming and fabricating technology to more than 1200 attendees. In 2005, Cintermex hosted more than 500 events and only 60 were nominated for an award. During a ceremony on May 4, 2006, METALFORM Mexico was honored as one of four finalists in the category for best industrial show. Chuck Cross of Trade Show Consulting attended the awards ceremony and accepted a plaque on behalf of PMA. Since its debut in 2004 at the World Trade Center in Mexico City, METALFORM Mexico has alternated each year between Mexico City and Monterrey, effectively covering the entire Mexican metalforming market. The 2006 exhibition is scheduled for November 7-9 at Centro Banamex in Mexico City, with exhibit space already 75 percent filled.
