MERIDA — One-hundred-twenty Yucatecan tourism professionals began on Tuesday October 17 a process to obtain certification in the specialty of Meetings and Conventions Tourism. They are taking a seminar course sponsored by the city council to obtain this classification and recognition.
It is about starting a training process with service providers, tourism professionals, transporters, travel agents, hoteliers, and restaurant and catering managers. The objective is to prepare employees and members of companies in the care, attention and requirements of travelers.
Carolina Cárdenas Sosa, Merida’s director of Economic Development and Tourism, said that after the certification of these providers of tourism services, Merida will also obtain a certification by having more than 100 people trained and certified to meet the requirements of this market, which is expected to grow in the coming years.
Cardenas Sosa said that after the call, 120 people were enrolled, including service providers, restaurants, travel agents, banqueting companies, as well as students from four universities. The course lasts three days and is conducted by a certification company, joining in this way with other cities that already cover this requirement.
With this Merida will join cities like Acapulco, Morelia, Leon, Cuernavaca and Cancun that also have this certification. It is expected that the opening of Merida’s new International Congress Center will increase the number of events of this nature, increasing the jobs and income of the entire tourism sector.
Cárdenas Sosa added that the certification for service providers and tour operators will be carried out by the company Latinomaerica Convenciones headed by Fernando Compean, who will apply a questionnaire to validate the certification of the enrolled personnel and will deliver a document with official validity.
