The annual Expotur, the exhibition of tourism operators, will be open to the public May 11 and 12, the sponsors said Monday.
The show will be at the convention center of the Hotel Wyndham San José Herradura.
The exhibition is hoping to generate more interest among Costa Rican public for tourism in their own country. Many of the booths are elaborate.
May 9 and 10 the exhibition will be closed to all but the trade. This is the time for deal making that allows tourism operators to meet with and sell packages to foreign agencies and tourism wholesalers.
Organizers also said at a presentation Monday that the show this year will try to promote convention and congresses in anticipation of construction of the Centro Nacional de Convenciones. The sponsor is the Asociación Costarricense de Profesionales en Turismo.
The organization said they expect 250 Costa Rican tourism firms to be showing their products to individuals from 36 different countries.
The tourism market is in its 29th year, according to the organization. The Web site is HERE!
