New York City (PRWEB) October 03, 2014
In an effort to assist in the recovery efforts of the city of Cabo San Lucas since Hurricane Odile made landfall on September 14, some of the area’s top tourism officials and resort executives made their way to New York. There they met with tour operation CEOs, airline executives an even an ambassador to discuss and make a plan to restore Cabo as quickly as possible.
For two hours, the 48 representatives from their respective companies discussed a recovery strategy and a campaign that is set to hit the public on October 15. The campaign’s main goal is to assure tourists around the world that Cabo is alive, thriving and is still one of the top vacation destinations in the world shares Solmar Hotels and Resorts.
At the beginning of the meeting, Mexico Tourism Board CEO Rodolfo Lopez Negrete shared that the individuals assembled were directly responsible for bringing 95 percent of North American visitors to Cabo each year. In an area where the entire city depends on the strength of its tourism industry, the Mexican federal government has allocated $5 million to help Cabo rebuild before the high season of travel.
Solmar Hotels and Resorts shares that all utilities to the area are scheduled to be up and running within the next week, and that many resorts will be open and operational by October 15. During the meeting, the director of airport operator Grupo Aeroportuario del Pacifico, Fernando Bosque, shared that the major airlines of Delta, Southwest, Spirit and Virgin America would all be starting up flights again to Los Cabos around October 8. In addition, most of the golf courses, restaurants, and activity companies will be up and running in time to welcome the first crop of guests back to Cabo San Lucas as well.
“Los Cabos. Unstoppable,” was the theme that came out of the meeting, with an entire social media and public relations campaign focused on showcasing Cabo’s readiness to receive visitors for the high season of travel. In addition, fundraising events will be held to assist those whose livelihoods and homes were affected by the storm, something that many of the resorts have already taken upon themselves. Solmar Hotels and Resorts has been actively collecting donations to assist in the relief efforts of its valued staff, many of whom lost everything in the storm. The company is collecting monetary donations, food and clothing to distribute to staff and their families in the Los Cabos area.
Solmar Hotels and Resorts is proud to announce that by October 20, all four of its acclaimed resorts will be welcoming visitors back to Cabo San Lucas, a statement that was made by a Solmar executive at the summit.
