Expo is a leading tradeshow for machine tools, auto parts, injection technologies and more
ORLANDO, Fla. (November 21, 2016) – Enterprise Florida, Inc. (EFI) will host the Florida Pavilion at the Vietnam Manufacturing Expo in Hanoi from April 5-7, 2017. The Expo will showcase 200 providers of machinery and technologies from 20 countries, representing industrial parts manufacturing, auto parts, plastics and rubber, mold and die, and much more.
“The Vietnam Manufacturing Expo provides access to a promising market for small and mid-sized Florida businesses in the manufacturing industry,” said Manny Mencia, EFI’s Senior Vice President of International Trade and Development. “Vietnam imported nearly $6 billion in machinery last year and this is the premier show in the market. It’s a great opportunity for companies in search of new parts suppliers or business partners in a growing foreign market.”
Recognizing the emerging opportunities in the mold-making and plastics manufacturing sectors, the Vietnam Manufacturing Expo is being positioned to help drive the growth of the supporting industries as a leading exhibition on machine tools for mold, die-making and injection technologies for plastics manufacturing.
Several opportunities exist for Florida companies in the following areas:
EFI is offering turnkey, six-square-meter booths in the Florida Pavilion for $2,000. The booth package includes booth space, overhead signage and three product highlights in the Expo newsletter, as well as a company listing in the show directory.
Target Sector Trade Grants are available to qualifying companies. The Grants reimburses 50 percent of the exhibition cost to companies exhibiting within the Florida Pavilion. The deadline to register is January 6 and space is limited.
EFI maintains an extensive schedule of overseas trade missions and exhibitions worldwide. In fiscal year 2015-16, Florida small and mid-sized businesses reported more than $911 million in total projected export sales following international missions and trade shows. Last year, EFI provided 129 Target Sector Trade Grants totaling nearly $490,000 to qualified show exhibitors. Those small businesses reported more than $426 million in total expected export sales.
