This coincides with Spring Break 2012 and Puerto Vallarta is benefitting greatly. One local promoter, Andy Boggeri with PV Event Group, stated at a recent press conference that just over 6,000 students have already made their reservations. He sites major downturns for spring break activities in Acapulco and Mazatlan as a boom for the area. Andy also says that some hotels are catering exclusively to spring breakers and over 25 villas have been rented in Conchas Chinas to accommodate the college students. He estimates that around $6-million US dollars will be spent in Puerto Vallarta during this time period.
Prime Social Group has been recognized by the industry and their peers as one of the most-respected concert promotion agencies for college students. "Our mission is to create a platform for university students, giving them an opportunity to meet and make friends while enjoying a talent filled event," says Zach Ruben, co-founder of Prime Social Group, "These events will be taking place all over the world."
Electro Beach is not only attracting American and Canadian college students, but many Mexican nationals and others from Europe. The 42 night spring break music experience is a must for any electronic music fan.Click HERE to purchase tickets and get more information.
