The lobby of Hotel Fairmont Acapulco Princess was buzzing yesterday, as delegates from across the globe were checking-in here and at nearby properties in anticipation of this week’s Tianguis Turistico 2015.
The conference has made a return to its home city for the 40th anniversary event after three years in other regions across the country, prior to which it took place in Acapulco for 36 consecutive years.
It officially kicked-off on Monday with an inaugural meal hosted by the Secretary of Tourism Claudia Ruiz Massieu, also joined by President Enrique Peña Nieto.
Mundo Imperial, Acapulco's new conference centre, will be the central point for Mexico's largest tourism event. With more than 8,000 delegates from 60 countries taking part in the trade show over the next two days, this is an opportunity for the city to showcase a destination that has recently been plagued by bad publicity due to safety concerns, impacting air access from major airlines and tourism arrivals to the region overall.
Stay tuned to PAX as we share more news over the course of the week.
