Lexington, KY – What better place for the first MPS Conference in Latin America than Brazil? As the largest national economy in Latin America, Brazil is also the second fastest growing MPS revenue market. MPS Conferences have become focal points for the local imaging industry in many international markets. The 2011 Brazil MPS Conference, hosted by Photizo Group, takes place July 25-26 in São Paulo at the Sheraton World Trade Center.
Photizo has forecast Brazil's MPS market to grow at a compound annual growth rate of 49 percent from 2009-2014, making Brazil the second fastest growing market after India. With a 41 percent MPS revenue share, Brazil overshadows Mexico, its nearest competitor in Latin America, by 13 percent. A further boost will be the 2016 Olympic Games in Brazil, as investments pour in to improve IT infrastructure, services, telecommunications and transportation.
"Industry players are beginning to place big bets on Brazil, as the North American market becomes more saturated with MPS players," said Photizo Group founder and CEO, Ed Crowley. Photizo's 2010 MPS Market Share, Size and Forecast shows that the large OEMs already have their foot in the door of this emerging MPS market. Xerox and HP lead the pack with more than half of that market, followed by Lexmark and Ricoh.

"The MPS industry is evolving quickly, and every market is different. It can be hard to get started, much less stay ahead, in emerging markets where the knowledge base is still small. The MPS Brazil Conference will provide in-depth knowledge and start-up information not available anywhere else.
