Monterey, NL. The meetings industry began to recover in 2021 with events such as Expo Manufactura, which brought together more than 4,500 people and generated a significant economic impact. This month, work is being done on the planning of strict sanitary protocols, as well as on the purification of the air in closed spaces to guarantee that the 26th edition is the safest and avoid contagion of Covid-19, he told The Economist, Clelia Hernández, director of the Nuevo León 4.0 initiative.
“We are ready for the Manufacturing Expo that will take place from February 15 to 17 at Cintermex. Last year we had an event with many challenges, even so the format was respected, perhaps it did not have the same attraction (as in previous editions), but many brands trust the Expo, because Nuevo León is a symbol of manufacturing and industry very strong and many linking contacts are made between companies”, he highlighted.
Nuevo León currently faces a high incidence of confirmed cases of the Omicron variant of Covid-19. “We have already experienced the closures (of spaces for Congresses), now we are ready to carry out Expo Manufactura. The state Ministry of Economy reports the guarantee that everything will be taken care of, safeguarding the health of the speakers, exhibitors and attendees”, he stressed.
In 2021, a capacity of 4,500 people was estimated and attendees were asked to bring face masks and masks in closed spaces, in addition, an air purifying technology created by the Tecnológico de Monterrey was introduced in the conference room.
Presence of Nuevo Leon 4.0
The Nuevo León 4.0 initiative will have an active participation in the Advisory Council of Expo Manufactura, in the planning of topics for the panels that will be moderated by leaders of the sector such as the National Council of the Maquiladora and Export Manufacturing Industry (Index) Nuevo León; the National Chamber of the Electronic, Telecommunications and Information Technology Industry (Canieti) Northeast, the Tec de Monterrey and the Autonomous University of Nuevo León.
“We have a very clear participation on the first day on intelligent linkage between tractor companies and scale up, we want to show success stories from Nuevo León, we also participated in a panel of general directors of manufacturing companies,” she noted.
On the other hand, Nuevo León 4.0 also organized, together with Tarsus México and in alliance with Canieti Noreste, the Smart Manufacturing Corner, with a conglomerate of technology-based companies, with topics of industry 4.0, technological development, Internet of Things, Big Data and Artificial Intelligence, as well as the presence of the main universities in the state and will once again have the Vintec platform (Technological Linkage).
