The organizers of the said event includes engineer Javier Lechga Leal who is the principal coordinator for the Tijuana Art Expo, Canirac president Jose Antonio Gonzalez, and Cotuco (committee of Tourism in Tijuana) chairman Ana Alicia Meneses Martinez.
It is also expected that more than 120 craft companies from all over the country would participate in the Tijuana Art Expo and a minimum of 15,000 participant, both locals and tourists, would come to be part of the celebrations. Aside from the showcase of Mexican artistry, craftsmanship and ingenuity, the Tijuana Art Expo would also feature folk dances, live performances, and lots and lots of Mexican food.
