Mexico City — Plastimagen México 2017 will go ahead in Mexico City as planned on November 7-10, organizer E.J. Krause and Associates said Sept. 21.
Mexico City and surrounding areas suffered extensive damage in a 7.1 magnitude earthquake on Sept. 19 that killed hundreds, including students at a collapsed school. However, it appeared to leave much of the plastics industry in the region with little or no damage.
The Centro Citibanamex, where Plastimagen — the area's largest trade show — has been staged for a number of years, is undamaged and continuing to work normally, Paul St. Amour, EJK's vice president for Latin America, said in an email.
He added that EJK's office in the Mexican capital “only suffered superficial or cosmetic damage and structurally it is fine.”
