WE ’ LL BE THERE . teams , companies , and industry , we need to prioritize the carving out precious time to step out of the dayto-day and look out ahead and ‘ out there ’ for both challenges and opportunities BEFORE they happen or pass us by .

Otherwise , we ’ ll always be in reactive mode with respect to change . While the Web and digital communications are great , Google can only do so much with providing in-depth , practical , real-world awareness of problems and solutions that may or may not be in our field of vision . You don ’ t know what you don ’ t know , and you can ’ t ‘ Google ’ what you ’ ve never heard of .
That is why M-EXPO is so important for our industry , as it sits at the crossroads ( figuratively AND geographically ) of what is happening in our industry . Bringing together like minds who are encountering problems that we may also be experiencing ( or that may be hiding right around the corner for us ), along with people who are at the forefront of solving these challenges with technologies , practices , and people resources that we may not be aware of . With all the uniqueness of our industry , the ROI from sending our thought leaders to
M-EXPO and engaging with other like-minded thought leaders is immeasurable ,” states Khoi Nguyen , Director of Marketing , LAPP Tannehill .
“ As I continue to expand my business and reach , I enjoy working with Mexican companies . Many of these companies are US-based and are either shoring or reshoring , so there are a lot of commonalities . I enjoy the value systems of the people in Mexico . In Mexico , it ’ s more relationshipbased than transactional-based . Networking is a big part because it is a very tight-knit industry , and I feel very comfortable going and talking with anyone about their business and my business . It ’ s a great networking thing ; you never know who you will meet and hear their challenges . Some people are nervous about sharing too much about their business , but that ’ s not me . I look for individuals who want to develop a deep relationship , not just a transactional one ,” states Jeff Barth , President and Founder , JWB Manufacturing .
