Tianguis Success Touted

Send by emailBy Jimm Budd The Tianguis Turistico trade show, held in Puebla this year, was dubbed a rousing success by organizers, including Tourism Minister Claudia Ruiz Massieu. However, one journalist sniped that nearly twice as many buyers attended the event when it was held in Acapulco during 2008. Aim of the fair is to bring together buyers (packagers of tourism products) with sellers (airlines, hotels, ground service providers, destinations and others). For 36 years, the Tianguis had been held in Acapulco, but in 2011 organizers announced that it would become “itinerant”. Last year, Puerto Vallarta and neighboring Riviera Nayarit played host. Next year it will be the turn of Cancun and the Riviera Maya, and then Acapulco again will be the venue. Ruiz Massieu announced that after that the Tianguis will take place in Acapulco during alternate years. Most of those who attended agreed that Puebla did a splendid job, but some mentioned that they really never had a chance to see anything of Puebla except their hotels and the Exposition Center.
