Lima to host TravelMart LatinAmerica in 2020
William H. Coleman, Inc., PromPeru, and CANATUR confirm that the peruvian capital will host the 44th edition of the annual event in September 23-25 at the Lima Convention Center
TravelMart LatinAmerica is returning to this popular South America tourism destination after a 10-year absence. The last time this prestigious event was held here was in 2010. The “first ever” inaugural TravelMart LatinAmerica (TMLA) called “El Mercado” at that time was held in Lima in 1978, and has returned 3 times in 1984, 2005, and 2010.
About 225 Travel Industry “Buyers” from the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the Pacific, and 200 Supplier Companies from all Latin America destinations attend each year. A small group of selected International Travel Journalists also participate. Buyer and Supplier attendance is “balanced” to help everyone have a productive and valuable experience. Suppliers from the Host Country usually comprise about 35% of the total Supplier participation.
The TravelMart LatinAmerica format features the exclusive “Select Match” pre-scheduled appointments system that arranges meetings between “Buyers and Suppliers” in advance. Almost 6,000 business appointments are expected to be pre-scheduled with many more appointments personally scheduled during the Event.
All the TravelMart LatinAmerica (TMLA) Buyers and Suppliers will be staying at Host Hotels in Lima arranged by Sociedad de Hotels del Peru (SHP).
Most of the TMLA delegates will visit tourism sites throughout Peru by taking special Pre and Post Tours offered by registered Suppliers and coordinated by CANATUR.
Manuel Cuevas, Executive Vice-President of William H. Coleman, Inc., the TravelMart LatinAmerica organizing company, said: “We are very pleased to be returning to the TMLA “birthplace,” Lima, Peru. We are already working with a dedicated group of Travel Industry professionals from PromPeru, CANATUR, and SHP to be sure all TMLA’20 Delegates personally experience Peru’s professionalism and hospitality.”
TravelMart LatinAmerica (TMLA) is produced and managed by William H. Coleman, Inc., an international events management firm headquartered in Jacksonville, Florida, USA.
