Following a controversial decision by the new Mexican government to radically curtail the work of the national tourist board, Sapphire Goss heads to Tianguis Turístico in Acapulco to assess how the move is being received by the local hospitality sector
Tianguis Turístico México is the most important tourism event in Latin America, bringing together professionals of the worldwide tourism industry. Here Sapphire Goss visits for Breaking Travel News to discover how Mexico has revolutionised its tourism sector in recent years.
The 42nd edition of Tianguis Turístico in Acapulco, organised by the Mexico Tourism Board, broke records in terms of attendees, number of business meetings and participation from companies, buyers, and countries. The figures show the event exceeding the results in all of these categories from all Tianguis Turístico during the last five years.
