Next week, one of the three most important tourism fairs in the world, Fitur, begins in Madrid. The DR will be present in a big way at an event that some place in a top position when the reality is that the leader is the German ITB. Mitur is right to attend a meeting of such a high level as the one that takes place in Ifema and in which Latin America plays a very important role.
Minister Collado has scheduled a very busy work agenda, with meetings with agencies, tour operators, airlines and presentation of destinations. The head of Mitur will attend banking and other relevant activities in which he will coincide with the most important hoteliers based in the DR. Collado, who is active in social networks, will report on all these meetings.
In addition to talking with investors already established in the country, David Collado should cast his nets in a fishing ground of medium-sized hoteliers that in the short term, yes or yes, will have to leave Spain to expand in the Caribbean because growth is very limited in the Balearic and Canary archipelagos. Collado is in tune with the big names in tourism and must also be in tune with the wide range of entrepreneurs in the Balearic Islands, the Canary Islands and Catalonia. The DR is already welcoming medium-sized companies such as Mac, Fuerte, BG, Senator and soon Valentin. But there is more scope.
