 Tuesday, March 28, 2023 


The 47th edition of the Tianguis Turístico, Mexico’s largest tourism fair, has kicked off in Mexico City. For the first time, the event will be hosted in the capital, at the Citibanamex business complex, until March 29.

It is expected to be the largest Mexican tourism fair in history, and authorities believe it will be a watershed moment for the country’s tourism industry.

“This edition will be remembered forever and will mark a milestone in the history of national tourism, ratifying our country as a world tourism power and a destination full of success and exponential growth,” Miguel Torruco, Tourism Minister, said during the opening of the event.

Torruco stated that his objective is to make tourism an “instrument of social welfare” and a “reconciliation tool” in order to foster sustainable development and enhance local economies at all levels of Mexican society.

The Mundo Maya Pavilion, which strives to promote tourism attractions from the five historically Mayan countries of Mexico, Belize, El Salvador, Guatemala, and Honduras, is one of the event’s highlights.

As the government works to boost domestic travel, the new Felipe Angeles International Airport and Maya Train take centre stage. International airlines are also highlighted.

The fair will feature 150 exhibitors and nearly 2,000 national and international buyers. During the four-day event, organisers predict that around 6,000 business agreements will be concluded. The capital anticipates 15,000 visitors and total revenue of more than US $1.7 million.

According to Héctor Tejada, president of the Confederation of National Chambers of Commerce, Services, and Tourism, the fair will capitalise on emerging tourism trends in order to enhance visitor numbers and promote Mexico as a tourist destination.

Mexico City Mayor Claudia Sheinbaum declared that the city had outperformed all pre-pandemic statistics, and that the country had moved up five spots from 2018 rankings to become the world’s second most visited country.

Sheinbaum also launched the Mexico City Tourism Festival, which will feature artisan products and cultural expressions from around the country. The celebration will take place till Tuesday.
