iDemand Energy Storage (iDES3), a locally owned manufacturer of revolutionary energy storage batteries, is proud to be an exhibitor (booth #301) at the 28th Annual MexPort cross-border tradeshow slated for 10 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. on April 6th at 1855 Dornoch Court. An inauguration ceremony featuring San Diego Mayor Kevin Faulconer will start at 9:30 a.m.
More than 2,000 business leaders and representatives engaged in cross-border trade, including plant managers and purchasing and logistics directors from major manufacturers in the California-Baja region will attend, said MexPort coordinator Hugo Romero.
The roster of 120 companies exhibiting at the Thursday event also includes those engaged in providing transportation and manufacturing services, industrial supplies, health insurance and online theft protection. Last year, attendance totaled 1,800 and the exhibitor count stood at 98, Romero added.
“These have been good years for Mexico, U.S. trade,” he emphasized.
As quoted in the Atlantic, new research from the Mexico Institute at the Wilson Center, a nonpartisan think tank based in Washington, D.C., found that trade with Mexico creates approximately 4.9 million jobs in the United States.
MexPort is organized by the Otay Mesa Chamber of Commerce and sponsored by Smurfit Kappa, a leading paper-based packaging company.
