PV Int'l Fireworks Art Symposium Wrap-Up

If you missed the 11th International Symposium of Fireworks, which took place in Puerto Vallarta from April 20-24th, you can catch all of the highlights in this exclusive video provided by Willie and Rocio Flores and Ray Dion of PromoVision.

According to Fred Ward, the coordinator of the 11th International Symposium of Fireworks, which took place in Puerto Vallarta from April 20-24, 2009, had a record breaking number of participants, with 350 people from 33 countries making it the largest international gathering of the pyrotechnic industry since it's inception in Montreal in 1992.

Throughout the four-day event, the Puerto Vallarta Sheraton Buganvilias Resort and Convention Center served as a meeting point for fireworks manufacturers from all over the world to exchange the latest technologies and ideas with other members of the pyrotechnic industry, and gave Mexico's pyrotechnical showmen the chance to showcase their various disciplines and specialties.

Various product demonstrations and shows were open to the public during the four-day event, including traditional fireworks displays evoking Mexican fiestas and folklore presented by fireworks companies from several states in Mexico, including Jalisco, Tlaxcala and Mexico D.F., among others.

"Everyone was truly amazed by the skill and artistry of the Mexican fireworks industry, and I know that we will all leave Mexico with a deep appreciation and tremendous respect for the fireworks community here. It's just been a wonderful experience to bring everybody to Mexico. It was the first time for many people to come to Mexico, and I think that there isn't a better ambassador for the country than the people of Puerto Vallarta. It's just been a wonderful experience." Mr. Ward said.
