Jose Luiz Da Cunha, chief executive of the Lima Convention and Visitors Bureau, spoke with Smart Meetings TV at IMEX America 2015, and said Peru is an exceptional destination for meeting planners because the country has such a wide array of hotels, venues and event space that includes Lima’s brand new convention center.
Da Cunha shares that Lima is the capital of gastronomy for Latin America, and is influenced greatly by entertainment, nightlife and shopping. He says Lima has experienced growth in the past two years and is in the fourth position for events in the Americas. Da Cunha adds that meeting planners can enjoy convenient access into Peru, noting that Lima’s region has exceptional connectivity, including direct flights to 39 cities and 18 daily flights to Lima from the United States.
Da Cunha says many of Peru’s guests enjoy visiting Machu Pichu, the Amazon jungle and surfing on Peru’s coastline.
