Cancun Hosts 12th Annual Mexico Showcase & Travel Expo
Cancun will play host to the 12th Annual Mexico Showcase & Travel Expo April 25 - 28 at Moon Palace Golf & Spa Resort. Founded, organized and operated by top destination management company, Global Incentive Management DMC (www.gimdmc.com) and the organization's president, Andy Ortiz, the three day conference brings together planners and suppliers, offering the opportunity to experience Mexico's most popular destination: Cancun.
Throughout the conference, planners will learn about new services, offerings and specific programs presented by knowledgeable hospitality professionals. More than 100 meeting planners from the United States, Canada and Mexico are expected to attend in addition to 40 exhibitors from Mexico and the Caribbean. Trade show professionals representing hotels, audio-visual/technology companies, decorators, restaurants, caterers, off-site venues, transportation, and eco-tourism operators will also be on hand to share their expertise in regards to working with groups.
"The wonderful participation and support of Mexico Showcase comes from a group of professionals who understand what this business is all about. Their mission is to let people know that Mexico can deliver exactly what the client requests. Having professional planners and organizers coming to actually experience our service is what has produced the twenty million in revenue directly attributed to this show for our country," said Andy Ortiz, President of Global Incentive Management.
Cancun hosts a variety of events and expositions every year that focus on diverse audiences and interests. The Cancun-Riviera Maya Food Festival, which just celebrated culinary talent in the Americas, was a complete hit this March. Other events like the Oasis Flower Power Festival at Oasis Hotel will feature the legendary Village People on May 3. The International Congress of Developmental Biology, Flight Centre Global Gathering and the Solar World Congress, to list a few, are examples of major events and congresses that will be held in Cancun this year.
Cancun is located in the northern part of the southeastern Mexican state of Quintana Roo. It is Mexico's number one tourist destination and is known all over the world for its spectacular beaches, unique beauty and breathtaking turquoise waters.
Cancun's shoreline recently underwent a $71 Million Dollar makeover, that featured 1.3 billion gallons of sand to renovating the Hotel Zone's seashore. The most popular tourism destination in Mexico and Latin America has also added to its sun, beach, and nightlife, by creating a unique five-day route that will offer visitors a chance to experience adventure and interaction with nature. Cancun and the Treasures of the Caribbean invite travelers to discover the vast natural, cultural and gastronomical cultures of Puerto Morelos, and the four islands of the Mexican Caribbean: Holbox, Isla Mujeres, Contoy and Cozumel. Cancun is a multifaceted destination that combines nature, historical Mayan Culture, glamour, luxury and world class tourism with the seduction for adventure, the passion for paradisiacal nature and the enchantment of gastronomical magic.
