EUROGUSS Mexico made its debut at the Fundiexpo, Mexico's biggest foundry exhibition, in Guadalajara (24th to 26th October 2018). Exhibitors and visitors alike were extremely happy with the outcomes of their trade fair participation, say the organisers. The entire area of the EUROGUSS Mexico pavilion was fully booked well before the event and offered clear proof of the interest there is in doing business in Mexico. The next EUROGUSS Mexico will take place in autumn 2020.

With EUROGUSS Mexico, Nu¨rnbergMesse is paving the way for companies to establish and expand business operations in the Mexican market.

From the very start we were impressed by the marketing concept for EUROGUSS and this was also part of the reason we decided to take part. As a supplier of deburring presses and tools we see great potential with steady growth in the Mexican market. We were extremely satisfied with the calibre of visitors and the contacts made during EUROGUSS Mexico, and this has reinforced our decision to invest even more in the Mexican market in the future. We’d also like to take part again in the next EUROGUSS Mexico.”

We are already looking forward to the next EUROGUSS Mexico in autumn 2020”, says Christopher Boss, international product manager and exhibition director EUROGUSS at Nu¨rnbergMesse.
