Officials with Fabtech Mexico say they were happy with attendance at this year’s event.

The May 5-7 show in Monterrey attracted 11,000 attendees, 530 exhibitors and used 125,000 square feet of floor space.

Booth staff with exhibiting sheet metal forming and sheet metal products company Trumpf said they were glad they attended.

"Mexico continues to be an important and growing market for Trumpf,” said Sheila LaMothe, a marketing manager with the company. “Fabtech Mexico offers us an excellent opportunity to reach that market. In fact, Trumpf sold equipment right off the show floor. We will be with Fabtech Mexico again next year in Mexico City and will be increasing our booth size and investment into the event.”
