Following a year of great achievements, NexusTours celebrated their success with over 60 prominent companies in the tourism sector of Cancun, Riviera Maya and Cozumel during the 5th annual Suppliers Awards. This event celebrates companies which have been instrumental in establishing the destination management company as regional leaders.
The Suppliers Awards were held on October 17th at the magnificent facilities of Royalton Suites Cancun Resort and Spa. This event recognized and thanked suppliers who offer excursions, transportation, supplementary services and, for the first time, accommodation options, for adding value and being a fundamental part of the successes achieved by the destination management company.
Ruben Gutierrez, President of Sunwing Destination Services/NexusTours, recognized everyone for their contributions,
“I want to thank you all, especially this year – which has been full of difficulties – because together we have found solutions and became stronger when facing each of the external factors that have affected our destinations. It has been one of the most important years for NexusTours. We have successfully completed our digital transformation, we have improved our services and expanded our travel partner and destination portfolio. I’m also proud to have the support of the hotel community, who believed in our project from the beginning and have helped us to consolidate it. Achieving positive results in this context would not have been possible without your trust and collaboration.”
Reto Staub, Country Director Mexico, spoke about the results achieved over the past year in Mexico, a country that continues to be essential for the destination management company’s growth. He added,
“Thanks to all our suppliers for demonstrating your expertise as tourism professionals; for your constant collaboration, commitment, quality, innovation and for always betting on differentiation and accompanying us to face the challenges of the destination”.
Roberto Bermudez, Senior Corporate Director Distribution & Product, also took the stage to discuss the positive evolution of the online distribution project that began a year ago,
