Costa Rica’s 10th annual Travel Show Expo is set for Thursday at the Hotel Sleep Inn, located just east of Parque Morazán. The travel fair will feature free talks and conferences, as well as the chance to earn tours, vacation packages, and other awards through raffle, said organizers.
Each year the fair gives small- and medium-sized businesses in the tourism industry a chance to attract potential customers and build their brand. Many of the companies say they will be offering great rates on hotels and resorts for the high season.
This year’s expo will pay recognition to three distinguished figures who have left their mark on the country’s tourism sector, according to the event’s organizer. Those three are Marjorie Washburn, Alfonso Acosta and Luis Villavicencio. The fair runs from 11 a.m. to 5 p.m. and will be located in the hotel’s Magnolia rooms.
