The new trade fair Expo F will be taking place in the ATLAPA Convention Center in Panama.

A new trade fair is planned for Panama. Expo F, the International Hardware Trade Fair, premiers from 24 to 26 October 2017 in the ATLAPA Convention Center and is intended to cover sectors like construction, home improvement, safety and security, maintenance and repair. More than 200 exhibitors from more than 18 countries or regions are expected from the hardware and tools sectors. The organiser is the America Expo Group, which is based in Panama. It is also planning a series of concurrent events to stimulate close communication among production-distribution-consumption professionals, according to an advance announcement.

The organiser sees the new trade fair as a gateway to the Latin American and the Caribbean market, as platform for both export from Latin America as well as for the commitment of foreign companies in Panama and its region. The country's economy grew last year by 5.8 per cent, while the rate of inflation only amounted to 0.2 per cent. Along with the booming of construction, the home improvement and gardening supplies retailers market is growing stably in the region, according to the organiser.
