Between fairs that are postponed and others canceled, a ray of hope comes from Mem Industrial – Tecno Mueble Internacional 2021, the leading event for the woodworking and furniture industry in Mexico and Latin America, will be held at Expo Guadalajara in Jalisco from 18 to 21 August 2021. Due to the global Covid 19 pandemic, the fair will comply with a comprehensive security and hygiene concept that meets the requirements in force during the summer.
More than 5,000 trade buyers are expected at Expo Guadalajara from 18 to 21 August. More than 200 leading brands will present their products on 11,000 square meters of exhibition space.
An advantage of combining the two shows is the change of venues: in even years, Mem Industrial – Tecno Mueble Internacional runs in Mexico City, and in odd years, such as 2021, at Expo Guadalajara. In addition, all exhibitors and visitors at Mem Industrial – Tecno Mueble Internacional 2021 will also have access to Expo Mueble Internacional, a furniture fair held on the same date at Expo Guadalajara in Jalisco.
“Merging emM Industrial and Tecno Mueble Internacional creates the leading event for the wood and furniture industry in Mexico and Latin America from 2021 on. The show will bring together suppliers to the furniture and woodworking industries and set the stage for new business deals“, says Christian Pfeiffer, Global Director LIGNA & Woodworking Shows at Deutsche Messe, Hannover.
In 2021, there will be a Makeathon aimed at designers, engineers and creative talents from different disciplines. The Makeathon challenges participants to use 3D modelling and digital manufacturing techniques to develop furniture solutions in the categories of living, working and urban. “The Makeathon is a creative marathon that promotes close connections, collaboration, exchange of ideas, and direct communication between furniture industry representatives and creative professionals. It aims to promote emerging talent in design and digital manufacturing in Mexico, while supporting the adaptation, redesign and reinvention of products, processes and materials that will serve as models for the industry of the future“, adds Pfeiffer.
