The LA office has developed key relationships with targeted travel organizations and agencies, travel advisors, tour operators, airlines and more to offer a detailed overview of the tourist destination.
Los Cabos Rules
After the pandemic caused shut down of the destination and a worldwide loss of travelers and intention to travel, Los Cabos had to prepare a strong consumer push that would bring the tourist destination to the attention of travelers when they were ready to travel again. “Los Cabos Rules” is a multichannel campaign using a fresh concept to put Los Cabos on the spotlight. The campaign ran in digital and social channels and influencer content generating 30,040,848 media impressions in 5 main cities (Los Angeles, San Diego, Phoenix, San Francisco, Houston and Dallas) that drive travelers to Los Cabos.
Los Cabos participated successfully with the first dedicated single destination pavilion in IMEX America. With 21 destination partners participating actively, this is the first time a Mexican tourist destination participates with a stand-alone pavilion and with 100% private financing. During IMEX America the members had over 1,000 appointments with event planners and meeting organizers.
