Frequently Asked Questions

Find the answers you’ve been looking for below:

What is The Mexico Trip?
The Mexico Trip is a 10-day trip happening on June 4-12th 2022, spearheaded by respected eCommerce leaders Amy Wees, Norm Farrar, and Tim Jordan. It is the first major initiative that will help lay down a more solid foundation and get more players involved in Mexico’s sourcing industry – sellers, buyers, manufacturers, logistics providers, and eCommerce professionals like you.
Is this Two Trips? One Trip? Why Two Cities?

This is two distinct trips, organized to attend both if you want to!  We start of in Mexico City for a Sourcing Trip, then we head to Cancun for a high-level ecom Mastermind.

What's the difference between the two?

The Mexico City trip will be limited to 100 people.  Although it will have MASSIVE mastermind components, it will be largely focused on learning how to source in Mexico.  You will meet manufacturers, shippers, and experts.  You will visit a factory, learn from local resources, and meet the right people.  You will leave from this having attended workshops, tours, a tradeshow, and had a LOT of fun.  Plus, you get to hang with tons of AMAZING sellers and thought leaders!

Can I attend just one segment?

Of Course!  While many attendees will come to Mexico City and then Cancun, you are welcome to attend one or the other only.

What does my ticket cost include?

You line up your airfare, and we will take care of the rest!  We have done a lot of trips like this to places like China and Latin America, and we learned that you need to focus on the networking and learning, NOT the logistics!  Your ticket price covers everything from a dedicated concierge that tracks your travel and picks you up at the airport, to all your meals included (with special meal request options, too), to amazing hotel accommodations, to the fun networking items and conferences.  You just get yourself there, and we will cover the rest!  More details on this are covered in the FAQ sheet on the individual trip pages. 

What activities do you have planned?
The 10-day trip is divided into 2 major segments: The Mexico Sourcing Trip in Mexico City and the Cancun Mastermind. Activities planned include conferences, factory tours, mastermind workshops, special dinners, sightseeing, the EvoLatam Trade Show, and E-Com Connect.

For a more detailed schedule, go to https://themexicotrip.com/#tmt_schedule

What is The EvoLatam Trade Show?
The EvoLatam Trade show is put together by the same group who organized The Mexico Trip. EvoLatam will be the first ever trade show in the Latin American region to bring eCommerce buyers from around the world to meet manufacturers and service providers in Mexico. Similar to other ecommerce, manufacturing, and sourcing fairs and trade shows all over the world – you can expect numerous participants from various industries – sourcing, manufacturing, logistics, and more – to join and present what value they can offer your business.

The Evolatam Trade Show is happening on June 8th, 2022 at The World Trade Center in Mexico City. For more details, go to https://evolatam.com

I am a manufacturer / supplier / service provider in Mexico. How do I register as an exhibitor at the EvoLatam Trade Show?
Please reach out to us at info@evolatam.com
What is E-Com Connect?
E-Com Connect is the afterparty happening right after EvoLatam. It is the perfect opportunity to build your network with fellow trade show participants, mingle, and celebrate the world of eCommerce over free-flowing drinks and hors d’oeuvres.

You do NOT need to attend the trade show before the event, but it is highly encouraged. For more details, go to https://evolatam.com/network

How many people can you accommodate in The Mexico Trip?
We only have space for 80 attendees (or 100 people including organizers) in both the Mexico Sourcing Trip and Cancun Mastermind. Slots are getting filled fast so make sure to register asap!

There is no limit to the number of attendees on EvoLatam and E-Com Connect.

Do I have to attend all activities or can I choose which activities to attend?
We encourage you to attend all our activities by booking the VIP experience – but you are also free to choose which activities to attend.

For more details on separate individual packages or the VIP experience combined package, check https://themexicotrip.com/special-offer/.

I won’t be able to attend the EvoLatam trade show - can I get a list of manufacturers instead?
Our list of exhibitors at EvoLatam is growing every minute – hence, we have not finalized and cannot post it on our website just yet. Do join our mailing list at https://evolatam.com or https://themexicotrip.com and follow us on social media for any updates regarding participating exhibitors.
I am a local resident of Mexico - do you have a local package that includes all activities but excludes hotel accommodations?
Yes, we do. Please reach out to us at info@themexicotrip.com for more details on our special local packages.
Isn’t there an Alibaba or something similar in Mexico?
No, there is no Alibaba or any online one-stop-shop for sourcing in Mexico. Some manufacturers may not even have websites! This is why it is more crucial for sellers interested in Mexico as a sourcing option – there is a need to do business, establish partnerships, train the workforce, and communicate in person.
What are the raw materials and finished products that can be sourced from Mexico?
Below are just some of the goods you can find in Mexico:

  • Plastics
  • Foam
  • Health and Wellness
  • Cleaning Products
  • Skincare
  • Decorative Handicrafts
  • Patio and Garden Furniture
  • Health and Wellness
  • Wooden Products
  • Plush
  • Ceramics
  • Apparel and Accessories
  • Leather Goods
  • Injection Molding
  • Tools
How are the MOQs with Mexico suppliers?
Just like other suppliers all over the globe, customized products for private label sellers usually require higher MOQs than others. Meanwhile, fixed goods for resellers – those that do not require customization have lower MOQs.
Is it safe to travel and do business in Mexico?
There will always be stereotypes and misconceptions attached to any place on Earth, like guns in Texas, crime in Chicago, and gangs in Mexico. As visitors in a foreign country, we should always put things in perspective and use our common sense – stay in safe areas and don’t do anything that could put you in danger.

Nevertheless, we have arranged for private security to be with us through the duration of the whole trip. We have also booked first-class accommodations and transportations (all inclusive) for your utmost comfort and convenience.

What about Covid 19?

Since the start of the pandemic, Mexico has been open for travel and business.  It will be up to you to find out what your local travel guidelines are for leaving/entering your home country, but generally it is pretty easy to and from Mexico.   Most airlines are requiring covid testing to enter/leave a country, and we encourage everyone to get a test before coming on the trip.  That being said, we do not intend to cancel this trip!  We have run multiple events since covid started, and feel confident that this one will be great as well!
