Ecuador to Host ‘Discover Ecuador’ Roadshow in Key U.S. Markets



The Ministry of Tourism for Ecuador has announced that Ecuador will be hosting a five-day roadshow during May 2013. The Ministry of Tourism will be meeting with leading members of the travel trade industry in New York, Washington DC, Chicago, Los Angeles and San Francisco from May 20 – 24.

In each city, Ecuador will hold a “Discover Ecuador” Event and Workshop and would like for you to join in on a day of networking and learning, where you will be briefed on the latest developments in Ecuador with the opportunity to meet with key top tourism suppliers in Ecuador.

In addition to this delegation of tourism suppliers, guests will meet with representatives from the Ministry of Tourism while enjoying a hosted lunch.

The event will showcase all that Ecuador has to offer, from the vibrant metropolis of Guayaquil to the world renowned Galapagos Islands, to the distinctive architecture and colonial charm of Cuenca. A major port city, Guayaquil offers much more than a connection to the Galapagos. The destination boasts beautiful town squares and a rich cultural offering, from world-class bars and restaurants to art galleries and museums.

Cuenca is a must-see for history buffs; located in the Andean valley, this city has a rich pre-Columbian history, but is best-known for its UNESCO World Heritage historical center. The area has over 52 churches, including the Old Cathedral dating back to 1557 – the year of Cuenca’s settlement by the Spanish.
