Magna Expo Mueblera is the most important commercial exhibition in Mexico focused on the supply of technology, machinery, material and equipment for the forestry, timber and furniture industries, aimed at the professional public at this segment. The opening event for Magna Expo Mueblera is going to take place today at 11:30 a.m. in the foyer of the Centro Banamex exhibition complex in Mexico City. Eumabois President Jürgen Köppel will kick off the Magna Expo Mueblera exhibition jointly with Christian Pfeiffer, Global Director of LIGNA and Woodworking Events at Hannover-based Deutsche Messe, along with Bernd Rohde, General Manager of Hannover Fairs México.
“Magna Expo Mueblera represents the ideal regional platform for sharing ideas and know-how. Thanks in particular to the commitment of the LIGNA organizers, with their dense international network and solid expertise, Magna Expo Mueblera has become the industry’s most successful trade fair. We wish every participant interesting conversations and good business,” declared Jürgen Köppel during the run-up to Magna Expo Mueblera.
Leading figures from business and politics are expected to attend the kick-off event, with experts offering an upbeat forecast for the Mexican timber industry. The production of wood products such as windows, doors and floors is being continuously modernized, as European woodworking machine manufac¬turers continue to establish themselves as reliable and dynamic partners for Mexican wood product manufacturers. Two international trade fairs will be staged under the umbrella of the Magna Expo Mueblera trade fair, which runs from January 17 to 20, 2018: Magna Expo Mueblera Industrial, showcasing machinery, tools, equipment and solutions for woodworking and wood processing, and Magna Expo Mobiliario e Interiores, which features furniture, decorations, household appliances and floor coverings.
Joining market leaders like Altendorf GmbH, Leitz GmbH & Co. KG, the SCM Group, Stiles Machinery Inc. and Michael Weinig AG/Holzher, the Biesse Group (Italy) has confirmed its participation in the Magna Expo Mueblera Industrial trade fair which will last till January 20.
According to Federico Broccoli, Chairman, Wood Division/Sales Director and Subsidiaries Division Director of the Biesse Group, based in Pesaro, Italy: “The Biesse stand at Magna Expo Mueblera 2018 will offer a unique opportunity to experience the company’s innovation in every area, from the strength of its history to its ability to define the technological features of the future of the manufacturing industry. We are taking part in this fair with great enthusiasm, both because we are well acquainted with the excellent organisational skills with which our partner DeutscheMesse manages this type of event, and due to our focus on this geographical area. Indeed, in 2017, the Mexican market has once again been providing us with very positive signals, which have translated into an increase in orders over the previous year, benefiting from the recovery in North America. In fact, the boost received from the US has enabled Mexico to record significant growth and we are confident that this market still has an enormous amount of potential to express.”
Represented by their Mexican subsidiary Hannover Fairs México, the organizers at Deutsche Messe (based in Hannover, Germany) have already reported a high rate of exhibitor participation from abroad. “Particularly gratifying is the high number of signups for the official German group pavilion at Magna Expo Mueblera Industrial, which is sponsored by the German Federal Ministry of Economics and Energy,” commented Christian Pfeiffer, Global Director of LIGNA and Woodworking Events from the Deutsche Messe head office in Hannover.
