The 2015 winter is a gold mine for Puerto Rico’s meetings and conventions industry. A total of 71 groups will be coming to the island during February and March to carry out their winter meetings, conventions and conferences, providing a positive effect on the local economy, Milton Segarra, president & CEO of Meet Puerto Rico (MPR-Puerto Rico Convention Bureau), announced today.
“Puerto Rico continues to position itself as the ideal destination for meetings and conventions, especially during the winter months, our high season. This year we have several groups conducting their winter meetings on the island. Certainly our climate and the type of experiences we offer here as a destination are memorable and we should maximize that,” Segarra said. He added that the 71 groups conducting their events in Puerto Rico represents an estimated total of 34,972 nights resulting in a $20 million direct impact on the economy.
