Tourism Promotion Agencies in Yucatan assure that the reopening of massive events is essential for the economic reactivation in the tourism sector

(MERIDA, YUC. – AAPROTUY).- Although almost all economic sectors have been reactivated despite the COVID-19 pandemic, one of those that remains pending is that of massive events and concerts.

In this regard, the head of the Association of Tourism Promotion Agencies in Yucatan (AAPROTUY), David Escalante Lombard, said that it is essential to reactivate the sector of massive events, and stop postponing this action, as it directly impacts the tourism sector.

“Massive events, specifically concerts, brings domestic travelers that spend the night in Merida y leave a significant economic spill, travelers who come from Campeche, Tabasco, Chiapas or Quintana Roo,” he said.

He explained that the service providers of massive events understand the issue of health protocols, and although they already have an estimated date to resume work, which is March, it is necessary to guarantee this will be done, so that hotel reservations are not canceled.

“The government must understand that, on the one hand, the first thing was to prioritize health, and that this issue cannot be postponed anymore, because the tourism sector is one of the most affected by the pandemic”, he concluded.
