Tianguis Turisticos de Mexico 2012 is the most important event for the touristic industry of the country. It is organized by the secretary of tourism. For the past 36 years, it took place in Acapulco, Guerrero. For the first time, it was in Puerto Vallarta, in the Riviera Nayarit, in Jalisco, from the 25th of March to the 28th of March 2012. It gathered a bunch of companies of different sectors as industry, investments, tourism.
One month was needed to set up everything. Workers started installing the necessary infrastructures on the 14th of February. The organization created 3000 jobs. A good point for the local inhabitants and economy! And it seems to have worked out rather well . Acapulco’s edition is a huge success in comparison to the previous editions in Acapulco. This year, 21,742 appointments were set up between the companies against 16,500 appointments for Acapulco’s edition last year. Also the surface of the exhibition’s place increased as more companies participated this year. (More than 550 companies from 22 countries were present this year which represents a 39% increase!).
Jalisco has a great touristic potential and this event shows us the interest of the companies in this kind of meetings. For sure, next year, this event will stay in Jalisco!
