The CVB’s Managing Director, Oscar Garcia Ramos, came on board in 2010, with the goal of positioning Leon as a national and international leader in meetings tourism. One year later, after the launch of several successful campaigns and promotions, Leon has been recognized as one of the fastest growing meetings destinations in Mexico, and has received several awards, including the ConvecioneS magazine accolade.
A safe and centrally-located metropolis, Leon offers visitors and event organizers connectivity by road and air, top quality meetings hotels and one of the country’s largest and best convention centers, Poliforum Leon. The city is also rich in culture and has outstanding restaurants and local attractions.
The Leon CVB team, group of experienced destination marketing professionals with a commitment to client service, pride themselves on bringing creativity, attention to detail and professionalism to their meetings tourism efforts. The magazine Mercado de Convenciones (MDC) recognized their destination marketing success by naming Leon to its “Top 10 Destinations for Meetings Mexico 2010” list, and, for the fifth consecutive year, including Poliforum Leon as one of the “Top Convention & Exhibition Centers in Mexico”.
Leon is the first destination in Mexico to receive a 100% rating for participation in the Mexico Meetings Network-Cvent Destination Marketing Seminar. All of Leon’s meetings hotels, its primary meetings venue and its Convention Bureau have received training by Mexico Meetings Network and have been successfully registered in the Cvent Supplier Network, the world’s largest site selection and RFP (Request for proposal) management system, making the destination completely ready to receive and respond to RFPs sent through this system.
