guatemalaThe event will bring together more than 1,000 attendees, including service providers, hotels, airlines, tour operators, tourism offices, media and other industry professionals.

TravelMart is expected to make both a short and long-term impact on the country’s economy by attracting important global buyers who will boost Guatemala’s tourism offerings. It also further positions Guatemala in the meetings and conventions segment, showcasing the country’s preparedness to host and execute international events with the latest technology and updated meeting spaces.

The event will take place from September 23 – 25 at the COPEREX Fairground Complex, one of the largest meeting venues in the country, which encompasses more than 200,000 square feet of space.
