BestCities welcomes Guadalajara to Global Alliance
BestCities Global Alliance welcomes Guadalajara, Mexico, as the 12th destination in its global network of business events destinations. The agreement extends the alliance into Latin America, expanding its worldwide footprint and furthering its aim of promoting positive impact through business events.
Guadalajara is a natural fit for BestCities, sharing a commitment to support meetings that create a positive, lasting impact in the host destination. The city has earned a reputation as an impeccable host to international conferences and aims to attract even more opportunities by joining BestCities. The city went through a stringent process to join the alliance, including a detailed site inspection and tour of the city.
“The city of Guadalajara has built a strong heritage in the business events industry over the years,” said Gustavo Staufert, executive director, Guadalajara Convention and Visitors Bureau. “Our convention and visitors bureau was the first in LATAM. We were also founding members of the Latin American Convention and Visitor Bureau Association. We were ground breakers in initiating reporting, accountability and measurement tools in Mexico. Our aim is the pursuit of excellence, and that is precisely the opportunity we find in the BestCities Alliance. We are excited by the possibility to learn from the best, and also, to share our own knowledge.”
