Mexico Is Focus of International Housing Conference

Builders and building product suppliers looking to tap the lucrative and growing Mexican housing market can get practical advice and make valuable business connections at NAHB’s upcoming International Housing Conference of the Americas. Taking place in Mexico City, Oct. 16-18, the conference is expected to attract key housing industry members from both sides of the U.S.-Mexico border.

Mexico currently confronts pent-up demand for 6 million homes. The market is expected to grow at 4.5% per year, with an estimated value of US$6.7 billion by the end of 2005. Mexico President Vicente Fox has set a goal of meeting the housing needs of 45 million new households by 2030, and Mexican builders plan to build more than a million new low- and middle-income homes a year for the next three years.

“NAHB’s 1st International Housing Conference of the Americas can help U.S. and Mexican companies identify opportunities to help reach Mexico’s housing goal,” said NAHB President Kent Conine.

“Now is the time for members of the home building industry to learn about the Mexican market,” Conine added. “With one-on-one meetings, education sessions and ample networking opportunities, NAHB hopes the conference will pave the way for collaboration between builders and suppliers from both nations.”

Conference sessions will feature industry experts leading discussions on the latest building concepts, housing and design trends, building efficiencies and technologies, green building, building codes and work-site safety, marketing strategies, Mexico's emerging mortgage finance system and more.
