We’re heading to Salvador de Bahiaa this week. The 1º Salão Baiano de Turismo, the Bahia Tourism Fair, is taking place from 17 to 19 May. As it was the case for the veteran Tourism Fair of São Paulo, the event will provide and excellent chance to talk about tourism, learn more about the myriad Brazilian destinations and rethink the way Brazil sells itself.
We have been invited by the Secretary of Tourism of Bahia to take part on a round table along with Ricardo Freire (from the most important Brazilian travel blog, Viaje na Viagem) and Alison McGowan (from Hidden Pousadas Brazil). We will debate on a topic close to us all: the independent traveller.
If you are going to the fair, the round table will take place on 18 May at 17:00. You will find all the info related to the fair at its official website.
We are delighted with the iniative of Bahiatursa (the official tourism agency for the state of Bahia), placing the independent traveller at the core of the discussion.
