Candidate City Statement for WCN 2023: Mexico

It is a pleasure and an honor to present Mexico’s candidacy to host the WFN World Congress in 2023.

Mexico represents the 15th largest economy in the world and the 15th largest exporting power.

One of the principal economic bases of the country is tourism. According to the World Tourism Organization, Mexico ranks sixth in terms of the number of visits by foreign tourists. Also, it promotes the diffusion of the natural, cultural, gastronomic, and historical attractions of the country.

Mexico has a well-earned reputation for being a hospitable country with people friendly to tourists. We currently have agreements with more than 97 countries whose citizens do not require a visa to visit us.

Due to its geographical location (in the center of the American continent), Mexico is the gateway to Central and South America. Its air connectivity is one of its advantages; today, there are daily direct international flights to 51 destinations so it is highly likely that attendees only have to take one or two flights to attend the congress. This significantly reduces travel costs for attendees. READ MORE.
