Expotur organizers announce ‘multidestination’ focus for this year’s edition
This year’s Expotur will highlight Costa Rica’s appeal to a wide variety of tourists, all throughout the year – not only because of its famed biodiversity and increasingly well-rounded cultural offerings, but also because of its options for business, adventure and wellness travelers.
Tourism Minister Mauricio Ventura and Massi Devoto, president of the Costa Rican Association of Tourism Professionals (ACROPROT) announced at a news conference at San José’s Crowne Plaza Corobicí Hotel that this year’s Sustainable Travel Market will showcase Costa Rica to 44 participating countries and 166 foreign buyers, who will interact with 268 Costa Rican and Central American tourism providers, or sellers.
For 34 years, the public-private partnership between the Costa Rican Tourism Board (ICT) and ACROPROT have promoted the country’s tourism offerings.
“Costa Rica is a destination that is globally known for its rich natural assets. Besides highlighting this, we want to show international buyers that our offerings are very diverse. We’re a multi-destination that offers products for most tourism segments: Expotur as a tool for promotion and an ideal platform for key business generation,” Devoto said.
Ventura described Expotur as the leading tourism market of its kind in Latin America, a result of constant coordination between the public and private sector.
Expotur will be held at the National Congress and Conventions Center from April 25 – 27. For more information visit Expotur’s webpage.
