Mexican tourism minister Miguel Torruco Marqués and the governor of the state of Yucatán, Mauricio Vila Dosal, have announced that, after analyzing the COVID-19 pandemic, the decision has been made to hold the next Mexican tourism show Tianguis Turístico México in Merida. It will be an onsite event running from Sept. 26-29, 2021.
Given the prevailing uncertainty, postponing this event, the main tourism event in Mexico and Latin America, will allow things to normalize and help participants to be in optimal condition when conducting business in a face-to-face format. Preserving the health of attendees, both national and foreign, as well as the local population, is the priority.
The new dates were selected after analyzing the calendar of international trade events, which will allow greater attendance based on this agenda, since the main tourist fairs and trade events in the world of the first half of 2021, have been postponed; such as FITUR, in Madrid, which will now be held in May; or they have changed their format, like ITB in Berlin, which will take place in a digital format.
“We are confident that this change will benefit the Mexican tourism industry, as it will allow to have the necessary conditions to host a successful face-to-face Tianguis Turístico México in Mérida,” declared Torruco Marqués, and Vila Dosal,
The government of Yucatán will continue to work in coordination with Mexico’s minister of tourism and with the private sector so the 2021 edition is “the watershed for a resilient and innovative Tianguis Turístico Mexico.”
