Puerto Vallarta, Mexico - The Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta Convention and Visitors Bureaus (CVB) are all set to host the 21st Annual Gala Vallarta-Nayarit Business Expo.
There are an expected 73 wholesaler agencies scheduled for 2014 that will meet with 82 hotels in every category from both Riviera Nayarit and Puerto Vallarta. An estimated 36 meetings will take place per hotel, which sets the bar for at least three thousand negotiations to take place.
