Manuel Antonio/Quepos Tidings

November 6, 2009

Representatives from the Aguirre Chamber of Commerce, Industry and Tourism recently visited Fort Lauderdale, Florida, in the United States, to attend the Fort Lauderdale International Boat Show and the annual Sister Cities International Dinner on the River event (re-named the Quepos Boat Show Celebration this year).

They also hosted a trade show for members and non-members of the the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce. For more information or to subscribe to weekly chamber notices or the monthly Chamber of Commerce newsletter, email your request to info@camaracomercioaguirre.com.

We now have a Traveler’s Coupon Book designed to help stimulate the 2010 tourist season by offering discounts to tourists in our area. The book is expected to have 200 coupons in four categories: restaurants, hotels, shopping and tourist destinations.

Discounts range from buy one/get one free to percentage discounts on purchases. The cost to have your coupon in the book is ¢10,000, with no other cost for the entire year. The coupon books will be available for sale for the 2009 – 10 tourist season in numerous outlets in the area. An expected 5,000 coupon books will be printed and sold throughout the area, starting in mid-to-late December. Deadline for insertion of your coupon is Nov. 28. Contact Marc Farber (2777-2561) for more information. This idea seems to be a win-win for everyone.
