On the heels of last year's successful UN Climate Change (COP-16) conference in Cancun, Mexico is playing host to a series of international summits in the first half of 2012.
Decision makers from government, the private sector and academia will meet in Puerto Vallarta April 16-18 for the World Economic Forum on Latin America 2012. The Event will take place at the Puerto Vallarta International Convention Center.
In May, Mexico will welcome tourism ministers from the world's 20 largest economies to the World Travel and Tourism Council Summit. The T20, being held in Merida, a colonial city and UN World Heritage site located on Mexico's Yucatan peninsula, will be immediately followed by the inaugural WTTC Regional Summit in the Riviera Maya.
The tourism summits will take place one month prior to the G20 Summit to be held in the Pacific coast beach destination Los Cabos in June. The G20 Summit is one of the world's most important financial and political meetings, and Mexico is committing $150 million USD for the construction of a new 653,400 sq ft convention center for the event. Los Cabos offers 13,000 hotel rooms, 11,000 of which will be used for the G20 Summit to accommodate more than 7,000 attendees.
