Business Tourism Generates Sales of $6.2 million USD a Year

From President Nieto’s Office

Business tourism is a form of tourism in which theĀ reason for travel is linked to carrying out work and professional activities undertaken at business meetings and on different scales (congresses, conventions, incentive trips, fairs and exhibitions).

Through fairs held in Mexico, business tourism generates annual sales of $6.2 billion USD.

Last year, in coordination with the Mexican Association of Fairs, AMEREF, this activity generated 151,100 jobs, of which 85,000 are direct and 66,000 indirect.

The government is seeking to position Mexico as a worldwide destination of excellence for business tourism , for which it is essential to offer quality services and tourism products that will enable it to compete in national and international markets.
