MEXICO CITY — The dates for this year’s Tianguis Turístico Mexico have been moved up by a few days following feedback from the private sector and international tourism industry.
Previously announced for Nov. 21-24, Mexico’s largest tourism event is now scheduled for Nov. 16-19. The location remains the same, in Mérida, Yucatán.
“After analyzing the requests of wholesale agencies, hosted buyers and international buyers, especially from the United States, and in order to have the best edition of Tianguis Turístico Mexico, the Ministry of Tourism and the Government of Yucatan have decided to have the event a few days earlier than previously announced, which is the most important in terms of tourism in Latin America,” said Miguel Torruco Marqués, Mexico’s Secretary of Tourism, and Mauricio Vila Dosal, Governor of Yucatán, in a joint statement.
The new dates, they added, will allow for antigen testing, vaccinations and the latest bio-sanitary measures to be implemented.
Michelle Fridman Hirsch, Tourism Minister of the state of Yucatan (Sefotur), is confident that Yucatán will be ready to host.
“The state of Yucatán will be ready to show itself as the great destination that it is, but also as the place where so many things have originated,” she said. “This time, Yucatán will be the origin of a new era for tourism, the stage where our industry is reborn.”
