What is The Mexico Trip?
The Mexico Trip is an 7-day trip happening Feb 11th -17 2023, 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.
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 7-day trip includes 3 days of conferences to learn how to source products in Mexico as part of The Mexico Sourcing Trip and attendance to our 2 day multi-category EVOLATAM tradeshow designed to help you meet manufacturers in Mexico. Activities planned include conferences, factory tours, workshops, special dinners, sightseeing, the EvoLatam Trade Show, and E-Com Connect (a special networking party after the tradeshow).
What is The EvoLatam Trade Show?
The EvoLatam Trade show is put together by the same group who organized The Mexico Trip. EvoLatam is the first of it’s kind trade show in the Latin American region to bring eCommerce buyers from around the world to meet manufacturers and service providers in Mexico. The first EVOLATAM was hosted in June, 2022 and was a massive success. We expect the next to be even bigger and better! 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 next Evolatam Trade Show is happening on February 15-16, 2023 at the Cintermex venue in Monterrey, Mexico. For more details, go to https://evolatam.com

What is E-Com Connect?
E-Com Connect is the afterparty happening right after the EvoLatam Trade show. 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.

There is no limit to the number of attendees on EvoLatam and E-Com Connect. Register free at evolatam.com
Do I have to attend all activities or can I choose which activities to attend?
All of our activities are included in the price of the Mexico Sourcing Trip. However, we have designed a flexible schedule to give you plenty of time to explore and network along side of planned activities. Our 2022 participants raved about the schedule and how much they enjoyed the mix of learning, networking, and fun!
I won’t be able to attend the EvoLatam trade show - can I get a list of manufacturers instead?
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 email@example.com for more details on our special local packages.
Isn’t there an Alibaba or something similar in Mexico?
What are the raw materials and finished products that can be sourced from Mexico?
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. However, participating vendors at our 2022 EVOLATAM tradeshow were incredibly accommodating, with great prices!
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 pre-planned every facet of this trip with pre-arranged transportation and safe venues and excursions. We have also booked first-class accommodations (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. Pay attention to your country’s guidelines for requiring covid testing to enter/leave a country, and take necessary measures to ensure smooth travel. 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!
