Quito to Host Travel Mart Latin America in 2013

The city of Quito in Ecuador has been named host city of the 37th annual Travel Mart Latin America (TMLA) scheduled to take place in September 2013.

The announcement was made during this year’s conference, which took place from September 13-15 in Cartagena, Colombia.

Quito attended TMLA to promote its new and current tourism offerings, including its soon-to-open Convention Center, the luxurious Ferrocarriles del Ecuador (Ecuador’s new train) and its new international airport, which is scheduled to open at the beginning of 2013.

Quito expects to host more than 1,000 international travel professionals during TMLA, providing them with an opportunity to experience the historical city first hand. TMLA will be the second international tourism event to take place in Quito in a row after this year’s World Tourism Organization’s 54th WTO Americas Meeting, which took place from September 11-13 and included the II International Ethics Congress and the 20th OAS Interamerican Tourism Congress. More than 400 guests, including tourism ministers and authorities from 25 countries, visited Quito for this conference and positioned it as an international meetings destination.

An UNESCO world heritage site, Quito is a quaint and colonial city equipped with superb infrastructure and the most modern services. Among its main attractions are the Avenue of the Volcanoes, the Middle of the World Monument, its historic center and much more.
