DETROIT — E.J. Krause & Associates Inc. and Tarsus Group Plc. have named Plastics News as the official provider of show daily newspapers for its Plastimagen Mexico 2016 trade show in Mexico City.
Plastimagen will be held March 8-11 at the Centro Banamex in Mexico City. The trade show attracts around 30,000 attendees and more than 850 exhibitors. The 2016 show will be the 20th edition of the trade show, which draws visitors from more than 36 countries.
“We are thrilled to partner with Plastimagen Mexico,” said Plastics News Publisher Brennan Lafferty. “Mexico is such an important and growing market globally for plastics processors, machinery makers and resin companies. I'm happy we'll be able to bring our editorial team to Mexico City to help tell stories, interview executives and shed light on important technology as well as plastics end markets like automotive, packaging and health care.”
In addition to the trade show, the event includes a conference and workshops presented by Plastimagen and the Asociación Nacional de Industrias del Plástico AC (Anipac), a Mexico City-based plastics trade group.
The Plastimagen show dailies will be printed in Spanish and distributed each day to exhibitors, trade show attendees and conference attendees.
Plastics News produces show dailies at various trade shows throughout the world, including NPE, K and Fakuma. On July 24 Plastics News received a silver national award from the American Society of Business Publication Editors (ASBPE) for 2014 dailies produced at the Fakuma show in Friedrichshafen, Germany. PN worked with sister publications PRW and Plastics News Europe on the Fakuma dailies.
“We are very excited to be working with Plastics News on the production of our show dailies at Plastimagen Mexico,” said Paul St. Amour, vice president, Latin America, for E.J. Krause & Associates. “The plastic industry is growing in Mexico and Plastimagen Mexico has almost doubled in size since 2008 showing the interest of international companies to participate in this burgeoning market. Having show dailies for the first time at Plastimagen Mexico will be of great benefit to the attendees and the exhibitors.”
