Tourism Fair in Nicaragua Postponed

Due to the crisis affecting the country, the union of tourist businesses has postponed the international tourism fair until September, having initially scheduled it for June 8 and 9.

Monday, May 14, 2018

In this event, business appointments and round tables are held between Nicaraguan tourism companies and wholesale buyers from Central America and other parts of the world. The president of the National Chamber of Tourism (Canatur), Lucy Valenti, explained that they decided to change the date and hold the fair in September.

Valenti explained to Laprensa.com.ni: "... 'We postponed the fair for the month of September, we had scheduled it for June 8 and 9, but the conditions are not right to do it now, there is the warning from the United States and many of the wholesalers we were bringing in come from the United States, and many of them had already canceled on us because of the warning, so, analyzing the situation, we decided to postpone it until the month of September, hoping that by that date conditions will be better, that the dialogue will have started and that this warning will have been removed."

"... She added that hotels and restaurants have also been canceling and rescheduling events, as the situation prevents tourism activities from being carried out at the same pace as before the demonstrations."
