On the other hand, Santiago Seisdedos, AMV Travel’s general director,mentioned that “the fair experience was better than expected. The same happened in FITUR. The stand was packed with travel agents, and we left this event very satisfied.”
Federico Osuna, president of Moebius, pointed out the value of this Colombian fair, “We came back to a fair that draws a big audience to show Argentina’s attractions and place our country as Latin America’s top destination. The Colombian market is essential for us”.
Jorge Ravenna, Dopazo & Ravenna Viajes’s commercial director, said, “That was our first time in ANATO, and we were amazed. It is a fantastic fair. We have established excellent contacts and there are great commercial opportunities. Tourism is getting reactivated, so we’re happy for having participated, grateful to the Argentinian stand, and satisfied with the results”.
Lastly, Sebastián Zumelzu, Wyndham Hotels’ sales manager, pointed out that he wanted “to thank INPROTUR and the Argentine Tourism Chamber (CAT) for such a significant event after these two years of pandemic. We see the reactivation, and we appreciate that everything has been flawless”.
