Within the framework of its international promotion plan, Visit Buenos Aires made a destination presentation in the city of Medellín and participated in Virtuoso Travel Week in Las Vegas

Visit Buenos Aires, the public-private agency for the international promotion of the city, presented its tourist offer to the main travel agents, media and authorities of Medellín.

The meeting was held on August 17 and took place at the York Luxury Suites Hotel in Medellín. It was attended by Lucas Delfino, President of the Tourism Entity of the City of Buenos Aires and member of the Visit Buenos Aires Board, and Karina Perticone, Executive Director of Visit Buenos Aires.

During the event, Catalina Rendon, VP of Communications and Corporate Affairs of Viva, made a presentation about the company and its new route that, since June, directly connects Buenos Aires with Medellín. Also present were Juan David Blanco, Secretary of Tourism of the Government of Antioquia; Alejandro Arias, Secretary of Economic Development of the Mayor's Office of Medellín and Ledys López, Undersecretary of Tourism of the Mayor's Office of Medellín.

“We celebrate having had the opportunity to carry out this type of action with destinations as important as Medellín. We know that the recovery of tourism requires joint work with the main destinations and coordination with the private sector. That is why these exchanges of management experiences and a better air connectivity policy are key to boosting tourism.” says Lucas Delfino, president of the GCBA Tourism Entity.

In the presentation, Karina Perticone, provided information on all the news in the city and new trends such as markets and gastronomic patios, as well as new experiences in classic products.

“We are presenting the new cultural, gastronomic and tourist offer of our city. Buenos Aires is fully active, with new hotels, new restaurants and a calendar of shows and performances for all ages. With the new Viva flight, Buenos Aires is much closer for all Medellin tourists”, said Karina Perticone, Executive Director of Visit BA.
