COFOCE had a participation at SAPICA, the event that reunited shoe and leather companies from Guanajuato with visitors from Mexico and from all over the world, as COFOCE fulfills its mission of bringing together Guanajuatense companies with buyers from all over.
In this 86th Edition of SAPICA the Mexican brands showed products for the Fall-Winter season in the halls of Poliforum Leon.
“We are interested in retaking the buying activity, reinforce the products from Guanajuato in Guatemala and now we believe we can reactivate all these purchases in which we are very much interested”, said Silvestre Rodriguez, of Group Mampa from Guatemala.
Besides, in this SAPICA edition only in the first 2 days of this Shoe Fair, and in something different from the previous edition, there was an increase in visitors both national and international, which means more opportunities for the economic development of Guanajuato.
“It has been a couple of years when we have been doing a hard work working with COFOCE, and we are very thankful, they have helped us open new paths in Colombia, where we are selling even Chinelas. And right now we are exporting to the United States and Colombia”, said the entrepreneur Arturo Hurtado of FairPlay of Moroleon, Guanajuato.
Within the program of the event and upon the demand of shoes manufactured for these global markets COFOCE and CICEG presented the activities that they do jointly as they serve these visitors of different countries and link them with companies from Guanajuato.
These two organisms –CICEG and COFOCE- direct the demand from the foreign markets with the offer of companies from Guanajuato that meet all the characteristics to become international suppliers.
“It is no question that production in all of Asia and the Pacific is changing and Mexico is turning into the great winner… And the United States has very strongly turned to Mexico, to all its sectors and all its industries to be able to strengthen its supply and distribution chains. Opportunities are coming no doubt about it and it is also true that these windows of opportunity come when you are prepared and this industry is now prepared; it has focused through the leadership of CICEG and SAPICA to certification, to accepting new trends, and to the evolution that has produced good results”, said the General Director of COFOCE.
