In these important events professionals of the international tourist industry gathered, as well as a massive amount of public interested in different options for vacationing
The Dominican Republic with its tourist destinations achieved a notorious participation in the The Boston Globe and New York Times 2019, the first held between January 18 and 20 at the Seaport World Trade Center in the city of Boston and the second from 25 to 27 at the Jacob Javits Center in New York.
These important exhibitions brought together professionals from the international tourism industry, as well as a large number of people interested in different options for vacationing.
The Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic presented an attractive proposal during the two events, which included the participation of hotels and chains Lifestyle Holidays, Be Live Collection, Senator, Bahia Principe, VIK Hotels, Blau Hotels & Resorts and as a guest institution The Puerto Plata Destination Tourism Cluster.
The proposal was complemented with gastronomic and cultural exhibitions. Crafts were also present with the Cayenart samples, created by Yasmín Guerrero, and the garments in Amber and Larimar by Gil Rose, among other elements that distinguish the offer of the Dominican Republic as a tourist destination.
Lucien Echavarría, director of the Office of Tourism Promotion (OPT) of the Ministry of Tourism (Mitur) of the Dominican Republic for the Northeast Coast of the USA, highlighted the importance of these fairs for the projection of Dominican tourism, in scenarios where important agents meet, as well as a broad public that individually seeks destinations to meet and vacation.
"The Boston Globe is the event for consumers of greater relevance in New England, so in our fourteenth participation we project ourselves as the number one destination in the Caribbean, which has it all, as our slogan says.
Regarding The New York Times, he said that, "the presence of the Dominican product is mandatory, since this is the largest travel event for consumers in the United States."
"For this version we wanted to fill the Dominican pavilion with color and taste with a sample of our traditional Carnival and the presence of the piglets of Santiago, and we put our gastronomy up, with the toast of a succulent salcocho," he said.
Both our team and the delegation that accompanied us agreed that the proposed goal for these editions was achieved, with excellent participation from the country, "said Echavarria.
