Belize struts it stuff at the 9th Central American Travel Market

Belize will be putting her best foot forward at the 9th  Central American Travel Market  being held at the “Centro de Convenciones y Exposiciones” in San Pedro Sula, Honduras this weekend, with a delegation comprising representatives of the Belize Tourism Industry Association (B.T.I.A.), the Belize Tourism Board and other tourism private sector partners in industry.

This is the sixth year that Belize will be participating, displaying  her rich culture with a newly constructed modular pavilion.

Great Belize Television Channel 5 has also partnered with the B.T.I.A. to provide live coverage all week, from Monday to Friday, October 1 -5, with daily coverage on the “Open Your Eyes” Morning show and a live televised show on Friday morning.

This exposition offers a wonderful opportunity for regional tourism professionals gathered in one place to establish commercial relationships with wholesalers from the important markets of Europe, North America, Asia and Latin America, creating new contacts and business opportunities.

Honduras’ Tourism Minister, Dr. Nelly Karina Jerez Caballero, said that  the Central Americas Travel Market 2012, using the criteria of sustainable tourism and conservation, “seeks to promote the region as a highly competitive tourism multi-destination on an international scope, by achieving an increase in the number of international tourists to visit Central America and therefore an efficient development of an industry that is increasingly becoming the main support of the Central American economies and regional integration process.”

The three-day fair is dedicated exclusively to international buyers doing business with the exhibitors, helping to increase the number of international tourists who visit Central America, with accrued  benefits from job creation, revenues, and regional development.

The event also provides a chance to learn more about the tourism highlights of Belize, Costa Rica, El Salvador, Guatemala, Honduras, Nicaragua and Panama.
