Mexico: Meeting Place of the International Community

Mexico City, Mexico – Reported by Elite Traveler, the private jet lifestyle magazine

Mexico announces its lineup of high-level and significant meetings on the heels of the G20 Summit of the finance ministers representing the world’s 20 largest economies, the B20 Summit of business leaders from the G20 countries, the T20 Summit of the tourism ministers from the G20 countries, and the G20 Trade and Investment Promotion Summit.

With over 57 major convention and exposition centers across the country and half a million hotel rooms in more than 3,000 luxury hotels, Mexico is equipped to hold meetings of international caliber.

“The main advantages of Mexico as an international meetings and conventions destination are clearly the convenient location to most US cities; the affordability of both air and land especially with the increase in the number of all-inclusive options; the diversity of destinations from cultural to resort to urban; and the superb service culture that exists across the country,” said David Peckinpaugh, president of Maritz Travel Company, a global leader firm in the meetings, events, and incentive travel programs.

Most recently, in November 2012, the Professional Convention Management Association (PCMA) of North America held its 5th Annual Advisory Summit in Mazatlan, Mexico.

Among the international meetings and conventions to be held in different locations in Mexico in 2013 include:

17th Congress of the International Society of Development Biologists – ISDB (Cancun)

64th Annual Meeting of the International Society of Electrochemistry – ISE (Santiago de Queretaro)

24th International Society for Neurochemistry Meeting (Cancun).
