- 140 travel agents participated in the events in Toronto and Montreal, Canada, a country that continues to increase the number of tourists that it sends to Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit.
The promotional activities of the Vallarta-Nayarit joint campaign are still in full swing, with cocktails and seminars held in Toronto, Ontario and Montreal, Quebec, on the 17th and 18th of September.
The Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta convention and visitors bureaus collaborated with the Mexico Tourism Board (MTB), informing Canadians about the fantastic recovery this market has had within the region, news the Canadian agents received to great acclaim.
There were a total of 60 travel agents in Montreal and 80 in Toronto, all of whom participated in the cocktails and seminars in both cities to be updated on the latest news from both the Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta.
The MTB’s support was in evidence throughout the events. Montreal MTB Director Manuel Montelongo and Rodrigo Esponda, North American Director for the MTB in Toronto, were in charge of sharing the statistics and data regarding the increase in Canadian tourism to Banderas Bay.
There were a total of 10 hotels participating in the events from both destinations, as well as wholesalers from Air Canada Vacations, Sunwing and Air Transat. Aeromexico also participated, as it offers direct flights from Montreal to Mexico City with excellent connectivity to the Vallarta-Nayarit International Airport.
The main objective of these promotional activities is to maintain the recovery obtained with Canada, which is reflected in the statistics of this year’s first semester. The Leisure Market was also reinforced, which is and will continue to be the main source of tourists for Puerto Vallarta and the Riviera Nayarit.
