Tourist, handicrafts and gastronomic exhibition
The Ministry of Tourism of Jalisco (Secturjal) and the Government of the State of Yucatan announced that from November 24 to December 4, the Benito Juarez Auditorium in Zapopan will host the tourism, handicraft, industrial, gastronomic and cultural exhibition: "Yucatan Exhibits", as a result of a joint effort between the authorities of the states of Yucatan and Jalisco.
This will be the sixth and last edition of this year's event, with which the presentations of this itinerant event will culminate, with the objective of exalting the artisan and industrial vocations of Yucatan, promoting cultural exchange and national tourism, as well as encouraging direct trade between producers and buyers in states and municipalities.
Jalisco's Secretary of Tourism, Vanessa Pérez Lamas, recalled that the states of Jalisco and Yucatán are united by ties of friendship and cooperation, cemented in the collaboration agreement signed last year within the framework of the Tianguis Turístico. Thus this event is an action that materializes the purpose of this agreement whose objective, broadly speaking, is to promote joint actions for the consolidation of both entities as tourist destinations.
"I am very pleased that Jalisco will host the last edition in 2022 of "Yucatan Expone", a very successful program, which seeks, among other things, to boost trade and tourism and thus, boost economic development and job creation," said Perez Lamas.
During the event, the Governor of Yucatan, Mauricio Vila Dosal, said that "it is about bringing a little piece of Yucatan, in this case to Jalisco, and this could not be possible without the support of the State Government, so I am very grateful to Governor Enrique Alfaro, to allow us and provide us with these facilities, and of course, also thank the support of the City of Zapopan and its mayor Juan José".
He also thanked the Guadalajara City Hall and its mayor Pablo Lemus for their support in publicizing this event, "because obviously this is something we need to do as a team as we always do in Yucatan". He added that these events will continue next year, for which a budget has already been allocated to continue visiting other states of the Republic.
Yucatán Expone will bring together 130 micro, small and medium-sized companies directly attended by producers from the municipalities of Izamal, Tekit, Motul, Tixkokob, Ticul, Tekax, Oxkutzcab, Tekantó, Muna, Teabo and Mérida. The fair will be open to the public from Thursday the 24th to Sunday the 4th from 11:00 to 21:00 hours.
Among the exhibitors are textile and clothing manufacturers, handicrafts, footwear, honey, sauces and condiments, liquors, hammocks, bags, jewelry, natural and organic products, seeds, concentrates, costume jewelry, ceramics, henequen articles, filigree, chocolates, craft beer and cochinita al vacío.
