In the Cali–Valle 2021 Junior Pan American Games, INPROTUR’s representatives held the ‘Espacio Argentino’ in Cali, in which more than 50 travel agents, operators, and specialised press of the country were welcomed.
During the event that took place last weekend in Valle del Cauca’s capital, guests enjoyed a typical Argentinian night, with local gastronomic product tastings and tango shows.
The Espacio welcomed the President of the Argentine Olympic Committee (COA), Mario Moccia, and Carlos Ferrea, head of the Argentinian Mission in Cali’s Games. Several South American Sport Organisation (ODESUR) authorities were also present.
These INPROTUR’S actions are framed within the Colombian market, one of the most important for inbound tourism in Argentina. Before the pandemic in 2019, around 170,000 Colombians travelled to Argentina, placing this country in the ninth position of incoming tourist ranking for our country. In addition, it is worth pointing out that Argentina was the Guest of Honour Country during ANATO 2021, with great results, particularly regarding connectivity. In that event, Avianca airline’s interest in operating flights from Cali to Buenos Aires was confirmed, and if attained, it will represent a landmark for Argentina’s tourism.
