The 2022 EvoLatam tradeshow was such a blast. We met many amazing Mexican manufacturers, wholesale suppliers, and warehousing professionals that will undoubtedly catapult your Amazon business to the next level.
What’s the fuss over the EvoLatam expo? Most people source products from China, right? So what’s so special about Mexico that it warrants a sourcing expo of its own?
First, this isn’t just some random trip to the culturally rich and ever-so-beautiful Latin America. We are at the forefront of the upcoming massive shift in the e-commerce industry. While it’s true that China is currently the central hub for manufacturing, soon this may very well change to Mexico. Check out this quick highlight reel of the Mexico trip!
Still not convinced? Here are a couple of reasons why joining the bandwagon to Mexico should be a no-brainer:
- Your shipping cost will drop thanks to proximity and less fees
- The lead time will be shorter from the usual 30-days (no delays included yet) to just 2-days since Mexico is just a border away
- Thanks to Free Trade, you can say goodbye to your tariffs
- There will be a lesser risk during crises like the pandemic
- Mexican products don’t have much global exposure yet – the products you’ll find will be one-of-a-kind!
And there’s so much more you can gain from incorporating Mexico into your supply chain. Since it’s an emerging manufacturing industry, you will get a head start on your competitors!
To get you started immediately, we’ve taken the liberty of compiling some of the best exhibitors at EvoLatam:
