ExpoMueble 2010 is an event organized by the Furniture and Forest Products Manufacturers committee of Agexport, the Guatemalan Exporters’ Association. It hopes to attract 20,000 people, 15% more than last year.
The event's coordinator, Ingrid Gaitán, told Sigloxxi.com, "there will be furniture for living rooms, dining rooms, kitchens, bedrooms, offices or for outdoors as well as decorative items, doors, closets and bars".
From July 5 to 10 furniture producers and exporters will be exhibiting their products in the ExpoMueble 2016 event and meeting with department store chains in the region.
Guatemalan producers of furniture and entertainment centers, chairs, kitchens, bedroom furnishings, and living room tables, will be able to exhibit their products to representatives of department stores such as Siman, Electra, La Curacao and Sears, among others.
From August 24 – 26, the XIII edition of the Food Fair and the VII Restaurant Congress will be held in Tikal Futura Hotel.
The XIV Food Festival will be held jointly. Among the three events, the organizers hope to produce business for $18 million (Q150 million).
According what Sigloxxi.com published: "The member of the organizing committee and chairman of the Business of Restaurants in Guatemala (GREGUA), Peter Meng, indicated that this activity is looking for entrepreneurs from the food and restaurants industries to become more competitive so that they can offer greater services to the region and the rest of the world."
The organizers expect next year's business deals to be worth $50 million.
