Tourism promotional event Chile - Brazil
With the aim of diversifying the destinations of Chile in the Brazilian market, the Chilean Under-Secretariat of Tourism, the National Tourism Service of Chile (SERNATUR), the Federation of Tourism Companies of Chile (FEDETUR) and LATAM Airlines held a meeting with tour operators from Brazil called "PRAZER - CHILE 2019".
The event was held at the end of May. It consisted of a series of tours through Chile where more than 20 Brazilian tourism companies learned about the majestic landscapes of the south of the country, the modernity of Santiago and the magic of the indigenous peoples of the North.
This initiative seeks to enhance tourism experiences linked to nature, outdoor, astrotourism, wine tourism, gastronomy and cultural heritage, which can be done in Chile. This, in addition to generating new business networks between both countries.
According to the regional director of Sernatur, Angelica Funes, "Brazil is a strategic market, growing and large. The Brazilian are well-known travelers, especially in July, August and September, and with a high level of spending. That is why the visit of these companies is important for the creation of businesses that increase the flow of Brazilians to our area. "
These promotional meetings began a few years ago under the name of Discover, continuing last year with Expedition and now Prazer. In September of this year a new version of Expedition will be carried on.
