INPROTUR and CAT held a press conference to reveal details of the event that will take place on December 6 and 7 during the International Tourism Fair (FIT)

The Press Conference, held at the Ministry of Tourism and Sports, was attended by the Executive Secretary of the National Institute for Tourism Promotion, Ricardo Sosa and the President of the Argentine Chamber of Tourism, Gustavo Hani, as well as provincial and national authorities and members of the CAT.

Sosa specified that “70 hosted buyers from more than 10 countries will arrive, including Brazil, the United States, Colombia, Chile, Peru, Paraguay, Bolivia, Uruguay, Spain and Ecuador, among others. The business rounds will facilitate the generation of pre-scheduled appointments, about 30 for each local provider, aimed at wholesale tour operators, travel agencies, High-end operators, Incentives, Corporations, Cruises, Language Exchange, roads and groups ”.

Regarding the current situation of tourism in Argentina, Ricardo Sosa stated: “The national government did a very strong job with the vaccination scheme and that has made it possible to begin a process of making the health issue more flexible, which allowed the reopening of the borders in order to put our tourism sector into activity. At the same time, we have been working with the minister in different parts of the world to achieve this reactivation ”.

“With all this work, it has been achieved that the frequencies of the airlines are almost at the levels of the pre-pandemic. In the case of other airlines that had never flown to the country, today they are requesting routes to fly to Argentina. This is a symbol of the work of the national government to recover tourism in our country ”, added Sosa.

Regarding the Visit Argentina Connect Business Rounds, the Executive Secretary of INPROTUR, remarked: “These business rounds have to serve to continue strengthening commercialization for the public and private sectors. We are beginning to get out of the pandemic, all together, and with tourism that is taking off with, for example, a pre-trip that is a success ”.

Gustavo Hani assured that: “The FIT will be historic for the moment we are going through. We already have 95% of the apartment sold and there are still 20 days left to continue registering. We have 40 confirmed countries and all Argentine provinces. Tourism will be the activity that reactivates the country. The Visit Argentina Connect business rounds already have more than 300 registered from all over Latin America ”.

In addition, Hani announced that, in a recent meeting, the Minister of Tourism and Sports, Matías Lammens, confirmed that the preliminary budget was renewed, therefore, all Argentine provinces will be able to take advantage of this benefit.

At the FIT that will be held from December 4 to 7 in La Rural, Uruguay will be the guest country.
