“Come to Know Colonial Treasures, Mexico”

( Mexico’s Colonial Treasures Seminars Announced for 2007

BEND, Ore. – July 25, 2007 – Travel professionals in four key U.S. markets are invited to attend an educational seminar series called “Come to Know Colonial Treasures”. These events unite Mexico’s important tourism suppliers and tour operators serving the central Mexico states of Aguascalientes, Durango, Guanajuato, Michoacán, Querétaro, San Luis Potosí, and Zacatecas.

The evening seminars are being coordinated and taught by Oregon-based Destination Ventures, Ltd. Experts in Mexico marketing, Destination Ventures is best known as the organizers of the popular “Magic of Mexico" seminar series (sponsored by the Mexico Tourism Board).

In addition to expanding agent education about Mexico’s fascinating cultural tourism, “Expanding air service and tour operator packaging to this region makes selling these seven states easier than ever,” said Greg Custer, Vice President of Destination Ventures, Ltd.

For agent attendees, the program offers a highly interactive experience. Agents can expect small-group, face-to-face supplier meetings, a sit-down dinner, classroom-style education (a 90-minute seminar), worksheet, and a full-color, seven state Study Guide on CD.

The four planned events are sponsored by Mexico’s “Colonial Treasures Tourism Trust”. Exhibitors will include various airlines, tour operators, Colonial Mexico hotels, and seven Mexican state tourism boards.
