Quintana Roo Takes Center Stage at FITUR 2024

CANCUN , QUINTANA ROO, MEXICO ,  /EINPresswire.com/ — Located on Mexico’s Yucatan Peninsula, the State of Quintana Roo participates in the 2024 International Tourism Fair in Madrid, Spain.

This event provides an ideal platform for the Mexican Caribbean to share the reasons for its distinction as an extraordinary tourism destination. From enchanting beaches to a deeply rooted cultural heritage, the state aims to enlighten visitors, encouraging them to explore a corner of the world where nature and history blend seamlessly to create a truly unique experience.

With more than 50,000 km² and its 12 destinations, including the city of Cancún, Cozumel Island, Playa del Carmen, Isla Mujeres, Bacalar, Holbox, and Tulum, the delegation from the state led by Governor Mara Lezama, Secretary of Tourism Bernardo Cueto, and the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council headed by its director Andrés Martínez is present at this important event to share with its attendees the entire tourism portfolio and the advantages it offers to attract visitors from all continents.

“The new advertisement of the Mexican Caribbean will be based on four key points: first, it will be focused on global positioning, aimed towards the markets related to tourists, which will incentivize connectivity; second, we will implement creative strategic campaigns through artificial intelligence and new models; third, we will execute a constant and articulated advertisement of the 12 destinies in the Mexican Caribbean in Quintana Roo; fourth, we will do a strategic training for the tourism industry to strengthen and enforce our message from every corner of the Mexican Caribbean. This new advertisement plan begins within FITUE 2024,” said Andrés Martínez, Director of the Quintana Roo Tourism Promotion Council.
