Officially introduced at a press conference in Puerto Vallarta this Tuesday, March 11, the board’s President, Ignacio Cadena, announced that after reviewing a series of possible candidates from different areas of the tourism industry, including academia and the Mexico Tourism Board, it was decided that Miravete would be the best candidate to bring the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board to the next phase.
“Puerto Vallarta is one of Mexico’s most important international beach destinations after Cancun and Los Cabos and we must open-up new markets through trade relations with hotels, airlines, wholesalers and tour operators,” said Miravete. “We need to open more opportunities for international decision makers to include Puerto Vallarta tourism offerings in their catalogs at a faster and more immediate rate and promote them constantly in the Tourism Board’s activities.”
Cadena added that the tourism board is investing in continuing the arrival and occupation rates of the destination, with particular interest in increasing visitors from markets in North America and emerging marts in South America and Europe.
