M-EXPO Wire Processing Event is Big Success in Mexico
Right over the Southern US border in Juárez, Mexico, in the State of Chihuahua, aka “the Wiring Harness Capital of the World!”, THE2ndAnnual M-EXPO’s Wire Processing Technology’sEvent was being held and was a huge SUCCESS!If you want to do business in Mexico “Maquiladora” region, this is the event to showcase your latest wire and cable processing equipment, tools, materials and technologies.
The M-EXPO 2018 was co-located with the EXPO-MRO at the Cuatro Siglos Convention Center on October 10-12, 2018. This three-day event was high energy, booths were buzzing with conversations and connections were being made. In addition to a packed exhibit hall, M-EXPO highlighted four speakers to discuss topics that were relevant to the Wire Harness Industry.
Dr. Tom Fullerton, Professor of Economics at the University of Texas at El Paso, “Border Prospects for 2019: An economic regional outlook for the border manufacturing industries”
Winn Wise, President Southwire’s of OEM and Industrial businesses, “Emerging Trends in the Wire and Cable Industry”
David Panko, FTZ Manager, “Legally Avoiding Tariffs and Customs Duties”
Constantino González, Chairman – IPC Acceptability Standards Committee & IPC Chairman – IPC-A-610 Committee, “Eliminate Supply Chain Confusion”
By the expressed interest from this year’s participating M-EXPO’s exhibitors, there is already an agreement in place to more than double the 2019 event space to accommodate approximately 50 exhibitors. (Some of the exhibitors who participated in M-EXPO 2018 wereArtos, BiTech, Cami, Cirris, Dunbar, HellermannTyton, HST, Identco, Immsa, Komax, Lakes Precision, Lone Star Industrial, Mechtrix, Newark, Panduit, Schaefer Megomat USA, Schleuniger, Stapla, WHMA and Wiring Harness News.)
If all goes as plans, M-EXPO will gain enough momentum and support to exist on its own without co-locating with EXPO-MRO for 2020. The M-EXPO team is setting the stage for an independent M-EXPO event to take place September 2020 at the Cuatro Siglos Convention Center in Cd. Juárez. Speaking with the M-EXPO team they stated, “We’re trying to make sure the M-EXPO doesn’t compete with other related industry activities and September seems to be a good month. If the M-EXPO is in September and with the Milwaukee show (EWPT Expo) in May, that seems to be a good time period between the two.” They stressed that the M-EXPO is not trying to compete with EWPT, rather it seeks to be a compliment to it and definitely the right place to have it – the “Wire Harness Capital of the World”.
M-EXPO 2019 will be held on October 9th– 11th, 2019. Reserve your booth now. www.mexpowire.com
