Held in Mexico City, the event is one of the major international conferences and tradeshows in the sector, growing in attendance and importance year after year.

Pneumofore successfully reverts the strategy to durability over-time, which avoids the waste of money spent in buying equipment over and over and making a forward-looking management choice and significant contribution to the Planet.
