Acapulco is set to host Tianguis Turistico, the most important travel industry event celebrating the destination of Mexico.
Tianguis Turistico is now in its 44th edition, and will run from April 7th-10th, with thousands of travel industry professionals from across the globe descending on the port of Acapulco to learn about all the regions of Mexico.
Over 1,000 hosted buyers from 43 countries will have the chance to meet 600 exhibitors will spread throughout the 240,000 square feet (22,500 square meters) of the Mundo Imperial, Acapulco’s newest convention venue, with capacity for more than 20,000 attendees.
“It is an honour and a vote of confidence for Acapulco and the State of Guerrero to host once again the all-important Tianguis Turistico,” said Ernesto Rodríguez Escalona, secretary of tourism of Guerrero.
“We are excited that thousands of members of the tourism industry will be coming to Acapulco to learn more about all that we and the entire country of Mexico have to offer the discerning traveller during this four-day conference and to see the new developments that have recently been planned and opened in the Pacific Ocean beach resort.”
As one of the largest travel events in Latin America, Tianguis Turistico will lead to over 40,000 individual business meetings.
Among the exhibitors are hotel companies ranging from international chains to independent boutique properties; airlines connecting Mexico to points across the globe; ground transportation companies, as well as DMCs, exhibition halls and other tourism-related companies and organisations.
Importantly, all 32 tourism authorities from across the different states of the Mexican Republic will be represented, on hand for meetings, questions and other information about the entire country and its myriad travel destinations.
