Expo Guadalajara will host its first trade show since March at the start of September.
Intermoda, one of Latin America’s largest gatherings for the fashion industry, will run from September 1 to 4, but permitting only one-third of the regular number of exhibitors, and one-fifth of buyers.
“The continuous use of face masks, antibacterial gel and healthy distancing will be mandatory,” said Mario Flores Aguilar, president of Intermoda.
Meanwhile, owners of hotels in Jalisco are asking the state government to relax the 25-percent occupancy limit set as a containment measure for Covid-19 transmission.
The hoteliers decided to call for a revision of the regulations soon after the Intermoda announcement, said Gustavo Staufert, president of the Guadalajara Convention and Visitors Bureau (OFVC).
“This sector is going through difficult times, but we are picking up the pace, little by little,” said Jalisco Tourism Secretary Germán Ralis Cumplido
Hotels in Puerto Vallarta are currently operating to 17 percent of their capacity, he noted.
