Costa Rica in International Tourism Fairs

The Costa Rican Tourism Institute is inviting companies in the sector to participate in international events.

Tuesday, July 14, 2015

In a press release issued on a large scale on July 13, 2015 in a single printed media format, the Marketing Department at the Costa Rican Tourism Institute (ICT) called on companies to register their interested in participating in international fairs in the second half of 2015 and the first of 2016.

EDITORIAL NOTE: We believe that the dissemination of these calls should be much broader, in order to ensure maximum transparency in these processes and ensure that all companies are able to take part. The call that we are reviewing has not been published -at the time of writing this- on the website of the ICT, as mandated by the regulation "General Regulations for Participation of Private Enterprise in International Trade". According to the ICT, the announcement "... is complemented with a reminder that is sent to all companies who have previously taken part and are on its corporate database. Similarly, it has been communicated through ICT regional offices located throughout the country, through sectoral chambers and the National Chamber of Tourism or the Costa Rican Chamber of Hotels. "

Companies wishing to apply must have a tourism declaration or Certificate for Sustainable Tourism (CST). The ICT has announced that the only days they will receive the ticket registration (form available on the website of the ICT) are 22, 23, and 24 of July, 2015.
