AMEE Brings Conference Program to Debut of EXPO PACK Guadalajara

Six-session conference covers changing trends, especially for entrepreneurs in western Mexico

 

Mexico City, Mexico; December 17, 2012 — PMMI, the owner and producer of EXPO PACK Guadalajara 2013 (Expo Guadalajara, Guadalajara, Jalisco; Feb. 27–March 1), is pleased to announce AMEE is supporting the exposition's debut with a two-day, six-session conference program designed especially to meet the needs of businesses in western Mexico.

"AMEE created the program to address changing trends and to strengthen Mexican firms with training and technological updates," says Hiram Cruz Cortes, the newly-appointed Director General of AMEE, whose goals include further strengthening the commitment and enthusiasm AMEE has historically demonstrated for EXPO PACK and PMMI.

Mexico is among the top ten buyers of machinery worldwide and early estimates show that packaging machinery purchases will grow more than 10 percent in 2012. This increase is closely related to the Mexican companies' commitment to increase their competitiveness through innovation in their packaging designs, which ensures their entry and positioning in local and global markets.

"This program will give entrepreneurs of western Mexico an opportunity to complement the packaging and processing machinery, packaging materials and other technological solutions they see on the show floor with discussions of current challenges and market demands," says Enrique Guzman, director of EXPO PACK Guadalajara 2013.

AMEE's conference sessions take place February 28 and March 1, the second and third days of EXPO PACK Guadalajara.

"At the end of the two day program, attendees will be able to identify key elements for adding value to their products and furthering their position in the minds of consumers," Cruz adds.

Conference sessions will cover control systems and traceability, beverage market trends, packaging machinery trends, innovation in packaging design, the role of new packaging materials in product safety, and developments in flexible packaging.

"For more than 30 years, AMEE has supported the leading producers and suppliers of raw materials and packaging accessories in Mexico," says Guzman. "We're very pleased to have their support and expertise at EXPO PACK Guadalajara."

EXPO PACK Guadalajara debuts Feb. 27–March 1, 2013 at Expo Guadalajara in Guadalajara, Jalisco, Mexico. Registration is available online at Expopackguadalajara.com.mx. To exhibit, contact Laura Thompson, director og international trade shows, PMMI: 703.243.8555.
