The FIEXPO Politicians Forum on its 7th edition was an incredible opportunity to exchange policies and ideas on how to implement strategic actions for the recovery in Latin American destinations. The Forum established a stronger commitment between the public and private sectors than ever before.
In the last six years, the Forum has created a high-value connection between both sectors that has enhanced the growth of the region and, not least, a deep understanding of how to work together unifying efforts to achieve strategic goals.
At this time, we had the honor to join two brilliant Keynote speakers, who symbolize the Forum spirit. The General Secretary of ALADI (The Latin-American Integration Association), Dr. Sergio Abreu. Representing the Latin America region from a governmental entity. Since its foundation, it has been working with the aim of the Latin country’s integration in different strategic areas of our economies.
Dr. Abreu has made a call to joint efforts, wills, and integrated actions looking for the needed recovery of our destinations working together with national and city governments.
On the other hand, Mr. James Rees, president of ICCA (international congress and convention association), one of the most influential global entities in the meeting industry representing the private sector spoke about the importance of the meetings industry in the recovery of the global economies.
Both keynote speakers shared their vision and future perspective of the regional and global market. After that, all the distinguished participants, tourism ministers, and vice-ministers, directors of the most important meeting industry associations, such as SITE, UFI, IAPCO, ICCA, JMIC, MPI, and presidents of professional associations and academic institutions, have started an intense debate. They shared their points of view and possible strategic actions that could be carried out together in the short term.
