About 30 representatives of wedding organizing companies that belong to the International Association of Destination Wedding Professionals (IADWP) are visiting the island of Cozumel, on a familiarization trip hosted by CPTQ staff.

Pablo Alfonso Aguilar Torres, promotion manager of the Tourism Promotion Council of Quintana Roo, explained that the Love Mexico Riviera Maya event was used to invite tour operators to know the potential of the destination in this market niche. Cozumel has been trying to position itself in the wedding tourism segment for several years.

Isla Cozumel Hotel Association considers the months of April and May of each year as the most important for weddings, due to the promotion made by the lodging centers, but their representatives could not provide figures.

Pablo Aguilar explained that the arrival of these representatives of wedding organizing agencies is part of the promotion actions for Cozumel.

During the Tourist Tianguis in Mazatlan, Sinaloa, in April of this year, IADWP representatives who have a representative office in Mérida, Yucatán were contacted.
