SPESA, AHM Event Appealed to Central American Region

An event produced by the Sewn Products Equipment & Suppliers of the Americas (SPESA) and the Honduran Apparel Manufacturers Association (AHM) attracted buyers from Central America as well as different parts of the world this past February, according to both organizations.

In a post-show press release, Benton Gardner, SPESA executive vice president, and Henry Fransen, AHM executive director, stated that response both to the quality and value of the show, from exhibitors and visitors, has been "overwhelming." Both said: "We are very, very pleased with the overall outcome of the show."

Staged at the Expocentro in San Pedro Sula, Honduras, the two-pronged show included SPESA Expo, an exhibition of machinery, parts, accessories, software and other technology, and AHM Sourcing, an exhibition of full-package and contract sourcing manufacturers from Honduras and throughout Central America, along with suppliers of trims and services.

In addition to more than 75 exhibitors, the event offered seminars on technology, manufacturing management, competition control, supervisor development and other topics. Attendees also were invited to participate in a conference entitled "Full, Fuller, Fullest . The Transition to Full Package," which explored the roles of product development, raw material procurement, financing and manufacturing in a full-package environment.
