Guadalajara Joins BestCities Global Alliance

16th May 2022

BestCities Global Alliance is expanding its reach to Latin America by welcoming Guadalajara to its ranks. The Mexican city shares the same dedication as the 11 other members of the alliance to create positive impact through the business events organised within its borders and complies with the BestCities Commitments.

Kit Lykketoft, Chair of BestCities, said: “With this important partnership, BestCities builds on its reputation as a truly global alliance while providing association clients with an even greater choice of host destinations. We look forward to showcasing this incredible city to delegates and planners around the world.”

Gustavo Staufert, Executive Director, Guadalajara Convention and Visitors Bureau, said: “Our Convention and Visitors Bureau was the first in LATAM.  We were also founding members in the creation of the Latin American Convention and Visitor Bureau Association.  We were groundbreakers in initiating reporting accountability and measurement tools in Mexico. Our aim is the pursuit of excellence, and that is precisely the opportunity we find in the BestCities Alliance.  We are excited by the possibility to learn from the best, and also, to share our own knowledge.”
