The Pacific Alliance
Launching a Virtual Tradeshow
Alianza del Pacifico

The Pacific Alliance Annual Business Roundtable is one of the largest annual B2B travel trade events in the Latin American region when tour operators and travel agents meet with Asian Pacific inbound and outbound companies. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions on travel, public gatherings, and lockdowns, it was not feasible to conduct an in-person event in 2020, so the Pacific Alliance sought to launch a virtual version of the event.
