PALMA DE MALLORCA – Hotelbeds Group, the number one bedbank worldwide and business-to-business provider of services to the travel industry, has announced that Mexico is the fifth most popular destination worldwide for its Hotelbeds brand – which supplies the world/s tour operators and online travel agencies (OTAs) with accommodation and ancillary products.
The most popular destination within Mexico for Hotelbeds clients is the Riviera Maya, which has been chosen as the host destination for the 8th edition of MarketHub Americas by Hotelbeds event. Additional destinations popular with clients using the Hotelbeds bedbank platform include Cancun, Puerto Vallarta and Mexico City.
Sam Turner, Sales Director at Hotelbeds Group, commented from the event: “It is great to be here in person at our 2017 MarketHub Americas by Hotelbeds event at the 5* Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya. Already I can see why this is the top destination choice for clients of Hotelbeds booking Mexico – itself the fifth most popular country globally for our clients.
“Mexico was one of our earliest oversees ventures and we/re proud of its success: as a destination it is clearly one of our top priorities, but also as a source market it is of ever growing importance to us – not least for the high level of domestic travel within Mexico, a growing area currently with the fall in the value of the peso.
“We have worked hard to ensure the best hotels and ancillary offerings available at the best prices across the whole of Mexico – and continually adapt that offering to meet the ever evolving needs, desires and budgets of travelers. Equally, as we have grown our sales operations – including within Mexico itself – around the world we have tapped into new and shifting demands for the Mexican market globally, ensuring growth and stability in bookings for the destination.
“Over the coming years Mexico will remain at the core of our strategy as we continue to invest in both developing our offering as a destination and boosting our source market presence.“
The MarketHub Americas by Hotelbeds event this year took place from Monday 24th to Thursday 27th April at the Hard Rock Hotel Riviera Maya in Mexico. The annual event brings together hundreds of the top industry decision makers from across the Americas, both North, Central and Latin America. It is a unique opportunity to meet like-minded experts and colleagues from the global travel & tourism industry in a dynamic yet informal environment of presentations from leading experts, networking, hospitality and entertainment.
MarketHub events by Hotelbeds have a proven track record, with more than eight events in the Americas and four in Europe having taken place already. This year Hotelbeds has reached an important milestone by launching the first ever MarketHub Asia, which will be held in Bangkok, Thailand from Monday 22nd to Thursday 25th May.
