Webinar Presents on Electronic Security Market in Mexico

March 2, 2006
Webinar discusses growth opportunities, research from Mexican security market

Back by popular demand and a growing interest from U.S. manufacturers, the U.S. Commercial Service, U.S. Department of Commerce, and the Latin American Security Association (ALAS) will repeat last month’s well-attended Mexican Security Market webinar.

Manufacturers can attend the upcoming webinar, which will be held on March 15, 2006 at 11 a.m. (EST), without having to leave the comfort of their offices.

The February Webinar, sponsored by SIA, ALAS and Expo Seguridad Mexico, was presented by George Fletcher, Director of DMF Consulting, who will also be returning this month to re-present his findings. Fletcher presented the results of his in-depth research into the Electronic Security Market in Mexico based in part on research from interviews with more than 40 Mexican companies, associations and Internet research.

The Webinar provided attendees with valuable up-to-date information on the Mexican market, including size, opportunity, and market future. Fletcher also touched upon issues such as NAFTA, crime statistics, the residential market, barriers to growth, a SWOT analysis and purchasing practices.

“George Fletcher does a tremendous job of information gathering and delivery, and his presentation of the information was done extremely well,” said Glenn Patrizio, director of sales for LRG International, who participated in the February presentation. “Without a doubt, any company that is thinking about doing business in Mexico should attend this webinar and purchase a copy of the market study.”

With close proximity to the United States and almost non-existent trade barriers, Mexico offers great potential for companies seeking new markets for growth. Most manufacturers selling in Mexico are experiencing double-digit growth.

The webinar provides an ideal platform and in-depth information for manufacturers to learn more about the opportunities of doing business in Mexico and also prepares them for the fourth annual Expo Seguridad Mexico 2006 conference and trade show, which will be held April 26-28, 2006 at Centro Banamex in Mexico City. The Mexican Security Market webinar uses WebEx technology, which combines a conference phone call with an internet site to present information. Users dial into a prearranged phone number and then log onto an internet site, where they have the ability to see and hear the information.
