Encuentro Latino

Organized by Viel Marketing Int’l

South America

ENCUENTRO LATINO!

COLOMBIA – PERU – ARGENTINA – CHILI – BRAZIL

Viel Marketing International, Inc. offers you the opportunity to meet with representatives of major tour operators in South America. In each city, we will meet with a minimum of the 10 major tour operators to introduce our destination. In return, these tour operators will invite 5 of their best travel agents to introduce their programs to Canada and to do a presentation about the destination.

The best time of the year will be in March and the itinerary is done in a way, so we can do as many countries as possible in less time.

The economy in South America knows some ups and downs, it will never be stable. When one country is stable, the other one is up or one is down! We have to know this situation, however, we are trying to work with people who have a visa and who have been traveling a lot. When we are talking about numbers, we can look at the following table:
