Tianguis Turistico Mexico 2014

Posted by: Terramar Destinations on: April 23, 2014





The 39th installment of Mexico’s most important travel trade show will be held in the Mexican Caribbean state of Quintana Roo May 6th through the 9th. Home to Cancun, the Mayan Riviera, Cozumel and Playa del Carmen, this jewel of the Mexican Caribbean is a perfect meeting place for buyers and sellers alike. Boasting over 32,000 hotel rooms over a 28-kilometer stretch of white sandy beaches and offering countless activities, the 2014 Tianguis will surely be a terrific success.


The Tianguis Turistico was created in Acapulco in 1975, the golden age,  and aimed to position Acapulco as well as Mexico as a premium destination for international travelers by focusing on the Acapulco Tourism Fair. Since then, the Tianguis has evolved and grown to become Mexico’s most important international tourism event, showcasing every aspect and destination of Mexico’s tourism economy and is today organized by the National Tourism Ministry and Mexico’s Tourism Board. It wasn’t until 2012 that the Tianguis was held in another city other than Acapulco. Just recently did President Pena Nieto decree that the Tianguis would return to Acapulco in 2015, but would rotate host city every two years.


It is the chance for travel industry professionals to meet with hundreds of Mexico tourism service providers focused on promoting and selling Mexico as a world-class destination. The venue is the same that the U.N deemed appropriate for the 2011 United National Global Warming Conference. The Lakam Center in Cancun, with an exposition area of 20,000 square meters will be the main conference center for the 3 day event, with other smaller social events taking place in some of the area hotels. And there is already good news. The Ministry of Tourism says this year’s Tianguis will exceed expectations. To date, there are 737 registered buyer companies, almost 100 more than at last year’s Tinaguis in Puebla. Fifty-nine countries are confirmed to attend when the objective was 43. Among them are new additions Slovenia, Vietnam, Romania and Iceland.


Furthermore, it is expected that over 8,000 visitors will be attending the Tinaguis in Quintana Roo who are estimated to leave an economic spill of over 12 million dollars over the 3-day period. Mexico’s touristic diversity will be on full display exhibiting all of our most desirable products; sun, beaches, culture, luxury travel, business and adventure among others. The state of Baja California Sur, Los Cabos and of course yours truly, Terramar Destinations will be present and actively participating. We’ll see you there!
