Riviera Nayarit Gets Ready for 'Gala Vallarta 2013'

January 25, 2013

Sunrise at Paradise Village in Nuevo Vallarta, Riviera Nayarit, where the 'Gala Vallarta 2013' will be held. Over 70 tour operators will come here to close deals with local hotels February 6th - 9th.

Riviera Nayarit will host "Gala Vallarta 2013," the most important business platform for hotels located in Mexico's Pacific Treasure and in Puerto Vallarta. The event will take place on February 6th - 9th, and will bring together 74 wholesale agencies and tour operators in our destination.

"Riviera Nayarit is looking forward to hosting these negotiations. There are already 74 confirmed agencies and tour operators which have confirmed their attendance, and we are very pleased to welcome one from South America which will be there to close business deals at Gala Vallarta," said Marc Murphy, Managing Director of the Convention and Visitors Bureau (CVB) of Riviera Nayarit. "There are also 24 participating hotels from Riviera Nayarit, so we're expecting good results."

Murphy also commented that the 20th edition of the Tianguis is a great example of the things that can be achieved when we work together with Puerto Vallarta. "For over 10 years this business platform has been shared between both destinations, and the results have always been positive for everyone," he said.

At Gala Vallarta, the CVBs of Vallarta and Riviera Nayarit are acting as a liaison between hotels and travel agencies, organizing the schedules to accommodate the wholesalers' requests based on participating hotels.

This year, Riviera Nayarit will host the business center, which will be setup at the Paradise Village Convention Center. Additionally, Mexico's Pacific Treasure will offer a closing dinner, which will hold many exciting surprises.

The CVB is a non-profit organization that works under the direction of the Hotel and Motel Association of Bahía de Banderas in order to promote the entire Riviera Nayarit. Through efforts like this one, we're promoting tourist activity which contributes to the development of the economy in our destination.
