FESPA Mexico 2015 sent strong signals of confidence in the Mexican wide format printing sector, with exhibitors reporting positive interest and buying intentions from visitors to the show, which took place from 20-22 August 2015 at Centro Banamex, Mexico City.
With over 9000 visitors this year, FESPA Mexico maintains its position as the leading event for the Mexican wide format and textile print community, attracting a loyal following from the country’s most prominent printers. Visitors to FESPA Mexico were high-level decision makers, with 46% having final say on investment and 90% being involved in the decision making process. Exhibitors endorsed the quality of the FESPA audience, with many making equipment sales during the show. The audience seniority was reflected in the high level of interest in the on-site educational conference.
Michael Ryan, Group Exhibition Manager for FESPA commented, ‘Mexico is outperforming the Latin American regional economy, and while growth in the national economy slowed a little in 2015, FESPA visitors show themselves to be optimistic and committed to a long-term view where capital expenditure is concerned. Feedback from exhibitors and visitors affirms that FESPA Mexico is considered a ‘must-attend’ event at which to buy, explore and network, and exhibitor reports of strong sales – including one exhibitor who sold two machines within the opening hour of the show – testify to the confidence and firm investment intentions of Mexican printers.’
FESPA Mexico 2016 will take place 18-20 August 2016 at Centro Banamex, Mexico City.
