Fiber-optic enabled technologies are transforming hotel and resort operations and the guest experience. We look forward to sharing our vision and capabilities to attendees. With our network reach and growing client base in the hospitality market, we are pleased to welcome the GNEX-ACOTUR Conference and attendees to “GigNet Territory.”

GNEX-ACOTUR Conference was launched in 2021 as a collaboration between Perspective Group who have produced the renowned GNEX Conferences for 13 years and Asociación de Complejos Vacacionales y Turísticos, A.C. (ACOTUR). The event brings the popular GNEX format and focus on networking to the second largest global market for vacation ownership as a regional annual event that is open to everyone.

Local industry leaders will be able to meet with international companies wanting to do business in Mexico. ACOTUR, a trade association based in Cancun currently has more than 40 member companies and business partners, which represents over 40,000 hotel rooms in the southeast of Mexico and 15,000 rooms in the international Caribbean with a total of 106 hotels.

“We appreciate GigNet’s support of our event as a first-time sponsor at the highest sponsorship level.
