The Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board is participating at this year’s North American Travel Journalists
Association (NATJA) Conference & Marketplace registration forum in Huntsville, Alabama this week.
As part of the city’s responsibilities as the host of the 2015 edition of the conference in May, this year the Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board’s President, Nacho Cadena, who is also President of the Puerto Vallarta Hotel Association will host a reception with a Mariachi Trio and Mexican food for the members taking part in this year’s conference and do a presentation on the city and its plethora of editorial opportunities.
Founded in 1991 by a group of sixteen travel writers, NATJA is the second largest association of writers,
photographers, editors, and tourism professionals dedicated to redefining professional development for the
travel industry. Members of the association have been published in leading publications including the New
York Times, National Geographic and USA Today.
Puerto Vallarta, an active member of NATJA, has been participating in the NATJA Awards for 3 years in a row
with hotel and vacation packages to the destination distributed to the winning writers.
Over 200 active journalists, associate members and guests are expected to participate in the conference from
May 5-8, 2015 which will mark the first time the conference takes place outside of the United States.
“We are pleased to bring our conference to Puerto Vallarta, a destination that is very popular with our
membership, and we are confident that their experience in this beautiful destination, will result in wonderful
stories, tweets and blogs” stated Helen Hernandez, NATJA CEO. “We look forward to introducing our members
to a new side of Mexico and highlight Puerto Vallarta’s world-class tourism infrastructure.”
The result of the work done by Puerto Vallarta Tourism Board’s PR agency, LATITUDE, this will be the second
international writer’s conference taking place in the destination. In 2012, Puerto Vallarta hosted the Canadian
chapter of Society of American Travel Writers, SATW, and the largest professional travel journalist association
in North America.
