Merida to Host 2020 Tianguis Turistico Mexico Events
Mexican officials announced the 2020 edition of the annual Tianguis Turistico international tourism fair would be hosted in Merida.
According to The Yucatan Times, the organizing committee voted 11-1 in favor of Merida as the hosting venue for Tianguis Turistico Mexico 2020, with Mexico City earning the only other vote.
Local officials in the Yucatan believe the event will bring influential tourism decision-makers to the region, increasing the economic impact from the fair and the area as a whole after attendees see what the destination can offer to travelers.
The event is expected to bring around 500 million pesos to the host city each year.
While Acapulco used to be the official venue for Tianguis Turistico every year until 2012, it was hosted last year in Mazatlan and will be organized in Acapulco again in 2019. Next year will be the first time the event will be held in the Yucatan.
