In 2018 tourism in Jalisco has maintained a sustained growth, although less than that reached in 2017 compared to 2016.
“Fortunately, tourism continues to grow in Jalisco. There has not been any fall despite the widespread insecurity reports about our state. The Hotel Association and the Visitors Office in Guadalajara and in Puerto Vallarta show positive results, although not as important as 2017 compared to 2016,” said the head of the Secretariat of State Tourism, Enrique Ramos Flores.
So far this year, there is a cumulative 4% growth in the tourism sector in Guadalajara and 3% in Puerto Vallarta; however, last year Vallarta reached 9% growth.
Tourism industry leaders are invited to participate in the fourth edition of the Jalisco Travel Fest to be held on October 19 and 20 at the Presidente Hotel in Guadalajara and organized by the American Chamber; where there will be lectures on new technological strategies and new segments of tourism.
“It is an orientation and training event, more than a tianguis or fair, where business appointments are scheduled, it is an event to enrich capacities and open the mind, because tourism in the last two decades is an activity with greater dynamism and growth, with great opportunities for the future,” said Enrique Ramos Flores.
