METALFORM Mexico Returns to Cintermex in Monterrey

CLEVELAND, OH—May 17, 2007—More than 2,000 top executives, engineers and manufacturing professionals are expected to attend METALFORM—Mexico's only focused metal stamping and fabricating exposition and conference. On September 25-27, 2007, the event returns to Monterrey's Cintermex, the facility which honored METALFORM as one of the top five industrial shows in 2005.

Nearly 150 companies will be showcasing the latest advancements in press and forming technologies, assembly automation and value-added services on the 15,000-net-square-foot show floor—a 10 percent increase over the 2005 Monterrey show. Manufacturers of metal parts and assemblies will also exhibit, answering the call to serve Mexico’s critical need for a larger supplier base.

In addition to the exhibits, an Educational Conference will provide convenient, cost-effective educational opportunities to Mexican metalforming-company employees. Covering popular topics such as forming technology and equipment, tool and die, materials and metal processing, the educational tracks will expand local industry knowledge and skills.

METALFORM Mexico alternates each year between Mexico City and Monterrey, effectively covering the entire Mexican metalforming market. The show is sponsored by the Precision Metalforming Association (PMA), the full-service trade association representing the $41-billion metalforming industry of North America, and co-organized by Trade Show Consulting (TSC), which has been producing shows in Mexico since 1992.
