Costa Rica News – Costa Rica’s new National Center of Congresses and Conventions is expecting at least 50 conferences in the first 12 months of operation.
In only one congress or convention, 10% of that figure can be achieved so it is quite possible that the figure is a conservative under estimate. In addition to congresses and conventions, there may be meetings and incentive trips held there.
Costa Rica hopes to attract $1.3 billion in congresses and conventions in the next five years, a previously untapped market.
This will help other markets and professions such as florists, taxi drivers and sound artists.
The country can now submit its candidacy to attract a congress in any specialty. Some examples include medical fields, technological specialties and sports.
It will become a strong competitor because it is a country of peace with advanced technology and education.
