Guadalajara Conference Explores Opportunities in Mexican Housing Market

The Mexican housing market is expected to top 719,000 new units this year as the purchasing power of the average Mexican grows and demand for middle-income homes explodes.

Builders and building product suppliers interested in entering this lucrative and growing market can get practical advice and make valuable business connections at the Partnership for Prosperity conference and concurrent NAHB trade mission in Guadalajara on June 27-30. Also participating in the conference is NAHB’s Mexican counterpart, CANADEVI.

The conference brings together U.S. and Mexican business and government leaders to discuss the state of the housing sector and growing opportunities to conduct business. Partnership for Prosperity was initiated by President George Bush and Mexico President Vicente Fox to stimulate economic growth and expand trade between the two countries.
