Mexico’s 40th Tianguis Turistico in Acapulco Kicks OffBy Dania Vargas Austryjak
Largest travel industry event in Mexico.
The 40th edition of the Tianguis Turistico Mexico (lit. “the Mexico Tourism Marketplace”) begins today, in this year’s host city, Acapulco. This is the largest travel industry event in the country and aims to promote services and products in Mexico’s tourism sector among potential and returning domestic and international visitors. It could basically be considered an exhibition of Mexico’s attractions, culture, and history around the world.
This 4 day event is a display for local and foreign companies seeking to discover and travel to known and unknown destinations in Mexico. It is also aimed at educating clients on touristic services and products offered by all of the country’s states. The event is mainly organized by the Ministry of Tourism and the Mexico Tourism Board.
This year’s edition Mexico returns to the city it was originally established and is expected to surpass last year’s host, Cancun, by registering over 38,000 business appointments and attracting more than 847 companies with their own respective pavilions from all over the world.
As last year’s host, Cancun has prepared a grandiose Caribbean style pavilion of almost 30,000 square feet, housing 30 companies and a 45 ft. long mega screen which will showcase the beauty of the Mexican Caribbean. This is the second largest pavilion just behind this year’s host.
The chosen venue for next year’s Tianguis will be the city of Guadalajara, Jalisco. Selected for its infrastructure, air and ground connections, this city beat Leon, Merida, and Cancun.
