Luxury event set for Riviera Maya

Riviera Maya is being selected as the host destination for the Mexico Luxury Travel Expo, to be held at the Aventura Spa Palace in the Riviera Maya from June 22 to 24, 2006.

“Mexico has always been steeped in luxury; however over the last few years, the growth of the upscale segment has warranted a show dedicated specifically to the Mexican luxury market,” remarked John McMahon, show director and group publisher, Luxury Travel Portfolio, Questex Media Group.  “This will be an opportunity for North American travel agents to meet, in an intimate setting, with Mexican upscale travel suppliers and experience the beautiful Riviera Maya. Launching an international show was a logical expansion of our already successful Luxury Travel Expo product. We look forward to presenting this new and exciting opportunity to advisors and suppliers alike. “

Mexico Luxury Travel Expo will provide an educational program for high-end travel agents, as well as, a trade show comprised of Mexican luxury travel suppliers, including: hotels, resorts, spa, golf, haciendas, regions and transportation companies.  Over 300 U.S. travel agents who specialize in luxury and desire more opportunities for their upscale clientele will attend the event. Other exciting happenings planned for Mexico Luxury Travel Expo include evening receptions, networking opportunities, cocktails, and VIP lounges.


“The Riviera Maya Tourism Promotion Board and Questex have agreed to closely cooperate and partner to ensure that only the highest level of professionalism will exist for the new luxury trade fair,” said Dario Flota, director of the Riviera Maya Tourism Promotion Board. “We are delighted to work with our new partner, Questex Media, which brings a wealth of expertise to help us realize Mexico Luxury Travel Expo, which will be the first trade fair for the luxury travel industry in Riviera Maya and in Mexico.”


The Riviera Maya Tourism Promotion Board’s international marketing aim is to strengthen the Riviera Maya’s position as a leading luxury destination. “We want to become the No. 1 (reference for the industry) in Mexico and the Caribbean,” said Flota. Alongside its beautiful beaches and tourist attractions, Riviera Maya offers excellent logistics and infrastructure as well as a high quality product for the upscale visitor.
