David Collado opens the first DR Trade Show in Miami with the region’s main tourism players

The Minister of Tourism, David Collado, held here on Wednesday, the first Trade Show of the Dominican Republic with the presence of more than 50 co-sponsors of the country and the attendance of more than 600 travel agencies and major tour operators from the United States, Canada and Latin America, in its effort to ensure that more tourists continue to visit their country.

“Having direct contact with more than 600 travel agencies and major tour operators from the United States, Canada and Latin America on a stage like this is the best guarantee that we will continue to break records with tourist arrivals in the Dominican Republic,” said Collado.

This first Dominican Republic Trade Show is being held at the JW Marriott Marquis Hotel in Miami from 8:00 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. this Wednesday.

He highlighted the impact that this event will have for the country in the arrival of more tourists in the coming months.

Within the framework of this first Dominican Republic Trade Show, Minister Collado held meetings with important tour operators and travel agency and airline executives.

He stated that these types of events and the roadshows he has taken almost all over the world, is the Ministry of Tourism’s new way of guaranteeing that more visitors continue to choose the Dominican Republic as their vacation destination.

“Every time we break our own records in tourist arrivals. This first quarter the numbers are extraordinary and all that is due to meetings like this one and that joint effort between the public and private sectors,” he said.

Collado attributed, among other factors, the success achieved in the recovery of tourism in the Dominican Republic to the great work carried out by the Tourism Cabinet, which he coordinates and which is presided by Luis Abinader.


The night before the first Dominican Republic Trade Show, Minister Collado presented his long awaited roadshow to more than 600 representatives of travel agencies and major tour operators from the United States, Canada and Latin America.

On that stage, Minister Collado presented why these tourism entrepreneurs should continue to support the Dominican Republic.

With videos showing the diversity of the Dominican tourism offer, Collado made an invitation to visit a country that “has it all”.

As part of this roadshow, Collado received several awards for his outstanding work as head of the Ministry of Tourism of the Dominican Republic and for the successful recovery of that nation after the pandemic.

He was grateful for the award presented to him by Princesa Travel, a leading company in the tourism industry in Mexico and Latin America.

The Minister of Tourism also thanked the Northstar Travel Group for its recognition.
