On February 14th, 2019, for the very first time, Eclipse International’s Armando Murillo and Matt Connolly headed south to Guadalajara, Mexico, to attend the 31st edition of one of the largest furniture markets in Latin America: EXPO Mueble. The “EXPO,” as referred to by local attendees, is an event where prominent furniture and mattress manufacturers exhibit their latest and greatest products so retailers from Mexico, and other Latin American countries, can select the best product lines to carry and sell in their stores. “I was very impressed by the quantity and quality of the products shown at this event. There is no doubt why now American companies are looking South as an alternative to Asian-produced offerings” said an excited Matt Connolly, Eclipse International’s Executive V.P. All in all, the Eclipse team met with 11 prominent Mexican mattress producers and uncovered several opportunities that made the trip worthwhile.
