The president of the Chamber of Commerce and Industry of Panama, Irvin Halman, said Expocomer has generated more than 8,000 hotel room nights, in addition to all of the services being provided to those participating in the show, such as transportation, restaurants, and flights filled with people who are coming into and out of Panama, elements creating a positive economic impact.
Halman said for the moment, the exhibitors and organizers are currently taking statistics from this year's show, information that will be announced in a press conference.
He also said Expocomer is a regional level meeting where exhibitors from more than 35 countries have to opportunity to test the receptivity of the Panamanian market and buyers.
This year's Expocomer ends today, Saturday. 20 April 2013.

Editor's Comment: If you've got nothing to do in Panama City today, it's always fun to hit the Expocomer (Commercial Expo) at the Atlapa Convention Center. There has been an explosion of new hotel rooms coming on the market in the past few months, so anything that fills hotel rooms is important. Occupancy rates have plummeted because there are now so many more new hotel rooms available.
