February 25, 2024

A Vibrant Start to a Promising Year

As the calendar flips to the end of February, Medellín and Antioquia are poised to make a significant mark on the tourism map with the Anato 2024 Tourist Expo. This event, scheduled from February 28 to March 1 in Corferias, Bogotá, is not just another expo. It’s a beacon of opportunity, projecting business worth an astonishing $1.3 billion. With 25 savvy businessmen ready to engage in nearly 900 business appointments, the stage is set for a transformative leap in how Medellín is perceived worldwide as a tourist haven.

Medellín’s Pitch: Beyond the Conventional

Medellín’s approach to this expo is intriguing. With a strategic focus on decentralizing tourism, the city aims to extend the tourist map beyond its conventional boundaries. Juliana Cardona Quirós, the Undersecretary of Tourism, envisions Medellín as a connectivity hub, a gateway to unexplored destinations offering rich and varied experiences. “City-region means becoming a great connectivity center to bring other destinations closer,” she emphasizes, signaling a fresh direction in tourism strategy.

A Snapshot of Medellín’s Tourism Landscape

The backdrop to this ambitious projection is Medellín’s robust tourism figures from 2023. The city welcomed 1.5 million travelers, primarily from the United States, Panama, and Mexico. A whopping 88% of these visitors came for vacations, recreation, and leisure, underscoring Medellín’s allure as a destination for relaxation and enjoyment. The city’s tourist attractions, led by the escalators of Comuna 13, Parque Arví, and the Botanical Garden, continue to draw millions, with hotel occupancy rates soaring to 72.2%.

The Anato 2024 Tourist Expo: A Global Meeting Point

The Anato expo is set to be a melting pot of cultures, with attendance from 20 countries and all 32 departments of Colombia. Over 16,000 commercial appointments are scheduled among 1,200 exhibitors, creating a fertile ground for business and collaboration. Medellín and Antioquia’s presence, highlighted by a silletera sample of Santa Elena, aims to showcase the region’s rich peasant culture and heritage, adding a unique flavor to the event.

The Power of Connectivity

With 227 air frequencies connecting Medellín to 13 countries and an additional 27 national routes, the city is already a significant player in regional connectivity. This infrastructure not only supports the city’s tourism but also bolsters various sectors such as gastronomy, hotels, and nightlife. The Anato expo represents an opportunity to further this connectivity, opening doors to new destinations and experiences for travelers worldwide.

The Buzz of Anticipation

As the Anato 2024 Tourist Expo draws near on Feb 28th, 2024; the buzz among Medellín and Antioquia’s tourism sector is growing. Entrepreneurs are gearing up to present their portfolios, hoping to seal deals that could significantly impact the region’s tourism landscape. With a collective aim to diversify and enrich the tourism offering, the expo is more than just a business event; it’s a pivotal moment in Medellín’s journey to becoming a global tourism hub.

In a world eager to explore and discover, Medellín and Antioquia stand at the threshold of a new era. The Anato 2024 Tourist Expo is not just a platform for business; it’s a testament to the region’s vibrant culture, stunning landscapes, and the boundless potential of its tourism sector. As we look toward the event, there’s a sense of excitement about the possibilities it heralds for Medellín, Antioquia, and beyond.

Among the large companies participating in the event, names like Avianca stand out, ready to contribute to the $1.3 billion business projection. This participation underscores the event’s significance and the industry’s belief in Medellín and Antioquia’s tourism potential.
