Hotel occupancy in Mexico was up 10 percent through August
2010, according to STR Global, while the number of international tourist
arrivals to Mexico was up 27.5 percent in July 2010 as compared to July
2009. That’s the good news. The bad news is that continued violence
related to the drug trade in parts of Mexico is affecting the whole of
the country when it comes to meeting and incentive programs. Meeting and
incentive suppliers south of the border are working hard to send the
message that the violence—and the travel warnings—are in regions
that are as far from incentive resorts as Atlanta from Boston. Check the

gathering’s primary purpose is the sharing of best practices in
orthopedics. Along the way, the international participants consider the
economics, politics, and culture of the countries in which they meet,

“We see an acceptance … that there are no quick fixes and
that the upturn will be a long, hard road.” That was the assessment of

Leisure, when the company released its latest Global Hotel Market
Sentiment Survey. The report revealed that hotel operators see positive
movement but a lot of ground yet to regain. We’ve got numbers from STR
Global, too, including who’s
tops in occupancy right now.
