El Salvador to Host Central American Travel Market

From October 9 – 11, 2009, the city of San Salvador will host the sixth edition of the Central American Travel Market (CATM).

Tuesday, May 19, 2009

The CATM Fair is the region's most important showcase because it is a platform that promotes business between the tourism sector in Central America and the rest of world. This event’s organization is provided by the private tourism sector in the region, through the Federation of Chambers of Tourism of Central America (FEDECATUR), with support from the ministries or institutes of tourism in the region which are represented in the Central American Tourism Council (CCT).

According to an article in Elsalvador.com, in last year's edition which was held in Nicaragua, "we had visits from 175 wholesalers from Northern America, Europe, Asia and Latin America."

In that edition, over 180 exhibitors and 50 journalists from various media in the tourism industry attended the fair.
