Event Summary:
PAACE Automechanika Mexico is Mexico and Central America's most important automotive trade show. Held annually in Mexico City, the event draws thousands of attendees in the automotive industry. Held in conjunction with the International Week of the Automotive Industry and with the support of important industry associations, PAACE Automechanika Mexico has become a growing platform for automotive business in the Mexican and Central American markets. With key domestic and international manufacturers as exhibitors, PAACE Automechanika Mexico is the ultimate platform for sourcing domestic and international products and suppliers. In addition the thousands of products, services and resources available on the exhibit hall floor, PAACE Automechanika Mexico offers valuable education and training, unmatched business solutions, exciting networking events and more. Sales Potential – Mexico expects to capture US$ 230 million in automotive investment. Leading states are Puebla, Estado de Mexico, Aguascalientes, Guanajuato, Sonora, Coahuila, Chihuahua, Morelos, and San Luis Potosi. Expansion plans were fundamental to local automakers such as General Motors, Ford, Chrysler, Volkswagen, Nissan, and Honda. The new players are Mazda, BMW, and Audi. In the production of new automotive parts, assembly plants are now requiring that their suppliers be as close as possible to them in order to reduce inventory volumes and to facilitate just-in-time delivery during the assembly process. This shift in production areas has forced many U.S. first and second-tier suppliers to move to these new areas so that they can produce at lower costs, reduce freight and handling expenses, and deliver parts and components very quickly in a JIT program. This trend opens a new field of opportunity to U.S. suppliers of production machinery and equipment, materials, pre-assembled components, molds and tooling, cutting tools, automation process equipment, raw materials, engineering and design, and in many cases, finished parts, and accessories sold through local representatives or distributors. PRODUCT CATEGORIES AND SUBCATEGORIES - Parts & Systems, Accessories & Tuning, Repair & Maintenance IT & Management Service Station & car wash.
