Earlier this month, PPAI Executive Vice President Bob McLean traveled to Mexico City for Mexico’s promotional products event, La Expo de los Promocionales, hosted by the Asociación Mexicana de Profesionales de la Promoción, A.C. (AMPPRO). Running March 2-4, AMPPRO’s event was held at Mexico City’s World Trade Center.

McLean’s trip, his fifth visit to the AMPPRO event in recent years, was an opportunity to learn more about the companies and people within Mexico’s promotional products industry, and to explore ways AMPPRO and PPAI can collaborate.


This year’s show, which drew 6,000 attendees, was AMPPRO’s last scheduled event with show management firm the MFV Group, having reached the end of its five-year contract. Once AMPPRO’s leadership has conducted its final review of this year’s show, it will plan the next event either with MFV or another provider.
