With the ratification of the twinning of Mérida with New Orleans, Mayor Renán Barrera Concha met with Kim Priez, senior vice president of New Orleans and Company, at the Mexican Consulate to explain the qualities that the Yucatecan capital has in various fields.

At the meeting where the Consul General of Mexico in New Orleans, Tito Livio Morales Burelo was present, Barrera Concha pointed out that the similarities between both cities could attract tourists.

It should be noted that New Orleans & Company is an accredited destination marketing organization, influencing thousands of decision-makers and millions of visitors to choose New Orleans through direct sales, marketing, public relations, branding, and visitor services.

Subsequently, the mayor met with the Consul General of Mexico to exchange ideas on the establishment of projects or liaison offices that allow connecting both local entrepreneurs in the tourism sector with their counterparts in New Orleans, to make that more American companies based in Lousiana see Merida as an ideal place to hold your conventions, forums, and events.
