If you have a couple grand to burn and would like to hang with the developer class, The Mexico Resort Developer Conference will hold their 3rd annual event on December 4 – 5, 2007. The Golf Legend (not named Tiger) Jack Nicklaus, will be there as a keynote speaker. Nicklaus currently has 12 golf courses in Mexico that he has designed with another 14 under construction. Most of those are priced in the $150 – 275 per-round range with the target market being the affluent golf traveler.
The conference presenters will address all aspects of building and marketing a resort in Mexico, betting that retiring baby boomers will have the means and desire to look at Mexico for luxury travel and investment. Oddly, the conference will be held, not in Mexico, but at the La Costa Resort and Spa in Carlsbad, CA, just north of San Diego.
