- After competing with the United States and Russia, the representatives of the states belonging to World Sailing chose Mexico’s Pacific Treasure as the best option to host the event.
The Riviera Nayarit continues to attract world-class events to the Destination thanks to its international positioning, its service infrastructure and natural bounty. Now, as the state of Nayarit celebrates its hundredth anniversary and the Riviera Nayarit marks its first 10 years, its most recent achievement has been to win the privilege of hosting the 2017 World Sailing Annual Conference to take place next November 4-8 at the Paradise Village hotel in Nuevo Vallarta.
This accomplishment was realized thanks to the efforts of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Vallarta Yacht Club (VYC), as well as work done by the Mexico Tourism Board and the Nayarit Secretariat of Tourism.
“Every year we’ve hosted itinerant events as well as our own anchor events that also have an international reach,” said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Riviera Nayarit CVB. “Our commitment to continue seeking events of this magnitude is still strong, especially now the Riviera Nayarit is known practically around the world.”
