The International Journalists Convention, an opportunity to attract tourism to our region

• The event organized by Red Radio Universidad de Guadalajara combines efforts with the joint promotional work being made by Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit, allowing us to internationally showcase the tourist attractions of our region

Both Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta will be seeking to capture the attention of the most important journalists in Latin America at the International Journalists Convention. The event announced on August 18 is being organized by Red Radio Universidad de Guadalajara in Puerto Vallarta, and will take place next September 8 and 9.


According to the Centro Universitario de la Costa and Red Radio Universidad de Guadalajara, the touristic industry in Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit is making a joint promotional effort with the objective of promoting the benefits of our region in anticipation of the Tianguis Turístico 2012.
“We decided to create something unique to celebrate the 10 years of Radio Universidad de Guadalajara. We could’ve made a party or a dinner, but we chose to make something that went beyond that, that would leave us all with something and that would allow us to present the reality of Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit to the journalists”, said the dean of the Puerto Vallarta Campus, Max Greig.
Journalists as important as Lucía Navarro, CNN news anchor, Javier Solórzano, head of the morning news at Radio 13 in Mexico City, José Ramón Fernández, an icon of sports journalism who works for ESPN and Radio Fórmula, Edgardo Claudio Matei, ESPN producer, Obed Arango, who specializes in migratory topics from Philadelphia, renowned caricaturists from Guadalajara: Falcon, Jis and Trino, and Alejandro Almazán, who writes for newspapers such as Milenio, Reforma and El Universal are among the many journalists that will participate in the event, and will be able to directly experience Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta.
“We think this is the best opportunity for these journalists to experience our region, to get to know the way we welcome tourists, the natural appeal of our region and the first-class infrastructure that can be found here”, said Salvador Peña, head of the Puerto Vallarta Convention and Visitors Bureau.
Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau of Riviera Nayarit thanked the authorities of the Centro Universitario de la Costa and of Red Radio Universidad de Guadalajara for their initiative to join the efforts of Puerto Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit to promote and attract tourists to our region.
“We firmly believe in freedom of speech and in the right to be informed, and this is why we consider that this event is so important, as we’ll be able to reach the communicators directly. It’s not the same thing to speak to someone about a distant place than to visit the place personally and later communicate one’s experience through the different media – it’s an incredibly important marketing asset”, concluded Fernando González Ortega, President of the Hotel and Motel Association of Bahía de Banderas.
