MERIDA — The eleventh edition of Outlet Expo 2017, which is being held from May 12 to 14 at the Convention Center Siglo XXI, from 9 am to 9 pm, is attracting many representatives of the tourism industry as well as the general public to share information on the different promotions and places to visit.

Among the promotions are tour packages with prices from $5,000 pesos all included in hotels of great importance of the region and other countries.

Yucatan has not much presence in the fair because this event’s principal aim is to attract people looking for beach destinations in an all-inclusive plan outside the state. The Port of Telchac is the only representative participant of Yucatan.

Regarding the slight increase in tariffs compared to past editions of the program, the event’s manager explained that “the increase is due to the fact that the Mexican Caribbean sites have had much promotion by the Federal Government outside of Mexico, due to the demand that this sector has showed in the last years”.

In occupation, he said, it is important to emphasize that the national market is important for the hotel zone, but especially the regional market, that is why this sector does not forget the tourists of the region, which have as their preferred sector; Riviera Maya, Cancun, Isla Mujeres, Tulum, Playa del Carmen and even Mahahual.
