NürnbergMesse North America announced that its first Mexico Pet Expo & Conference was a success with 123 exhibitors from eight countries and a total of 1,352 visitors from 10 countries.

Mexico Pet Expo also cooperates with the Mexican association of food manufacturers, La Asociación Mexicana de Productores de Alimentos A.C., which organized the “2nd Mexican Forum on Pet Food” that was held in conjunction with the show and aimed at petfood manufacturers. The event also had a special forum, "Area de Emprendedores," which offered a platform for business development and networking with smaller companies.

A survey of Mexico Pet Expo visitors revealed that the visitors were satisfied with the exhibitors’ offerings on more than 1,500 square meters of space and with the opportunities for acquiring information and making contacts.

The next Mexico Pet Expo & Conference will take place June 26-28, 2013, and will again be held at the Expo Guadalajara Convention Center in Guadalajara, Mexico.
