MEM Industrial is all set to reconnect with the American woodworking and processing industry from March 29 – 31, 2022, at the Citibanamex Center. The show was however, postponed from mid- January after assessing the feasibility of the event in light of the increase in Covid-19 Omicron variant cases in different parts of the country and globally, and new dates were decided. The event will now be held at the Citibanamex Center from March 29 to 31, 2022.
“For Hannover Fairs México, one of the leading companies in the organization of B2B events in Mexico, the safety of all our visitors, partners, exhibitors, suppliers and employees is a top priority,” said Azul Ogazon Gomez, Project Director, Hannover Fairs México. “Therefore, under the circumstances, postponing the event is the most responsible decision we can make to ensure the health of everyone involved in this event.”
In the American woodworking domain recent research confirmed that lockdown upturn that saved the furniture industry. The mandatory closure of companies forced many employees to set up home offices so they could continue working remotely. The woodworking and furniture industry, including the forestry sector, specialized woodworking machinery and suppliers have confirmed that the sectors “benefit” most from this global event.
This is because the mandatory closure of the majority of companies (of all types) forced employees to set up home offices so they could continue working remotely. As a result, furniture sales rose from between 5% and 20% in general. And in this woodworking and furniture manufacturing show the makers happily participate to further promote their products and innovations.
According to Teresa Calderón, president of the Jalisco Furniture Manufacturers’ Association (Afamjal), this can be attributed to consumers’ new furniture needs and the improved organization of furniture manufacturers.”
“We look forward to seeing you in March at MEM Industrial 2022, hosting the event under optimal hygiene and security standards and continuing the economic reactivation of this important sector for the country,” added Ogazon.
