- Over 500 travel agents from the
United States and Canada gathered in “The Gambling Capital of the World” for
this forum from March 22nd through the 23rd, a must for
the Riviera Nayarit and its hotels.
The Riviera Nayarit was present and accounted for at the Travel Agent Forum held from March 22nd through 23rd. This event brings together over 500 travel agents from the United States and Canada with top hotel chains, wholesalers, and destinations from around the world.
The forum is produced by the Travel Show Marketing group and is one of the most important events for the segment in North America; it was originally focused only on home-based agents, however, in the past few years it opened up to travel agencies as well, which widened the pool of attendees.
There were also more than 300 travel domestic and foreign travel providers in attendance offering services, resources, products, and destinations.
The Riviera Nayarit took the opportunity to offer a seminar and trade show along with Puerto Vallarta for Las Vegas area travel agents, updating a group of 24. Also present were the Paradise Village, Villa del Palmar Flamingos & Villa La Estancia y Hoteles Decameron.
The agents were extremely interested in the destination and shared very positive comments; many had already experienced the attractions offered by Mexico’s Pacific Treasure and are a part of the destination’s repeat tourism.
“We conduct these activities to maintain a presence in important events and keep the Riviera Nayarit’s attractions, tourism offer, and quality of service top of mind, as well as our constantly updated tourism infrastructure. This helps to position the area as a favorite within the Mexican Pacific,” said Marc Murphy, managing director of the Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB).
This summer Sun Country Airlines begins direct flights from Las Vegas and Henderson, Nevada, to the Puerto Vallarta-Riviera Nayarit region; there will be two frequencies per week on Mondays and Fridays from June 7, 2019 through August 19, 2019.
The Riviera Nayarit Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) and the Bahía de Banderas Hotel and Motel Association (AHMBB) reaffirm their commitment to the strategic promotion of the destination, pursuing opportunities and consolidating new markets to increase the number of incoming tourists with the support of the Government of the State of Nayarit via the Tourism Promotion Trust (Fiprotur).
