National Convention 2019

November 10-12, Oaxaca, México


The National Council of the Maquiladora and Manufacturing Export Industry, “index,” invites you to our 46th National Convention this November 10, 11, and 12, 2019.

Over the years, the manufacturing export industry has been developing this extraordinary experience of business and friendship, in which we not only strengthen the unity of the IMMEX sector and its financial agents, but which is also a great opportunity for authorities to gain familiarity and become involved in the industry’s activities, which need a flexible legal and regulatory framework in order to meet global demands.

Convention participants play a key role in the validity and growth of the maquiladora and manufacturing export sector, with certainty that, in practice, our business organization is leading IMMEX’s search for growth opportunities.

The Federal Executive Branch’s highest export industry authorities will attend the event, and, once again, they will witness that we are developing export companies that meet expectations and standards. Make your reservation, participate, and be part of the manufacturing export family’s big event.

Luis Aguirre Lang
National index Council President

¿Why Oaxaca?
