MMATT Arquitectos

Andalucia, Spain November 12 – 15, 2018

Extenda (Andalusian Agency of Foreign Promotion, for its initials in Spanish) invited us
to participate in the Contract International Forum, that took place in the Valentin de
Madariaga and Oya Foundation in Sevilla, Spain. In this event companies of United
States, Brazil, Panama and Costa Rica participated, besides four Mexican companies:
BGP Arquitectura Mr. Bernardo Gómez-Pimienta; SPACE Ms. Shantal Bravo; MMATT
Arquitectos Mrs. Victoria Nanni; AMASS& Mr. Rubén Rendón.
Here, many companies united to meet Andalusian companies in construction,
equipment, design, architecture and hospitality sectors. In the following days we visited

the Sevilla Tower, the tallest building in Andalucia with 40 stories; and CaixaForum,
exposition center in which company representatives took a tour.
At night we saw a flamenco show with music from Sevilla. Later, we went to Granada
to visit the exquisite Alhambra, and finished in the Health Science Faculty.
We also visited La Alpujareña carpet workshop, where we met the artisanal and
mechanical elaboration process of OLP Carpets. Finally, we went to the Marbella
Amare Hotel to see the furniture.

This event was filled with conferences and tours with Andalusian companies gathering
with people from different countries with the same goal: architecture.
We are grateful with everyone present, with Extenda for inviting us, with the Andalusian
companies for their hospitality and with the great friendships that we obtained in this
encounter.

CEVISAMA

MMATT Arquitectos

Valencia, Spain February 5-9, 2018

We were invited to participate in CEVISAMA fair, located in Valencia, Spain. This is a
material, finishing and bath accessories trade fair, which is three times bigger than
CIHAC Expo, same kind of trade fair that takes place in Mexico City.

Our sponsor, AMEC (Multisectoral Company Association, for its initials in Spanish),
took us to the center of the fair in which we had our own pavilion. There, in between
many other invited architecture firms, we talked with other companies associated with
AMEC through many days with the goal of building up the relationship between Mexico
and Spain in the aspects of distribution and merchandising of bath, sanitation and
ventilation equipment.

We could also walk around through the fair pavilions, where we found new
technologies and exclusive materials for our projects.
We are grateful with AMEC for the invite and the experience that MMATTArquitectos
acquired in this event.
