Visit San Antonio: Tourism Development, June 2020

Tourism Staff has made it through the list of the key accounts that had been identified in each market segment. We have had some initial conversations and have success in identifying those accounts that have a plan and/or are beginning their planning process. 

MasterCard

In conversations with the Senior VP of Global Cultural and Cross boarders, we have identified five key promotional opportunities with MasterCard through its Priceless Experiences and directly on its MasterCard cardholder website.  Our ideas for the virtual experience opportunity have been approved. Staff has reached out to partners involved to begin developing the concept and look to begin videotaping within the next three weeks.  If you have any questions, please contact Dorah Benavidez dorahbenavidez@visitsanantonio.com.

Mexico

The border restrictions were extended through July 31.  Please keep in mind that the border restrictions do not apply to travel by air, train or sea.  AeroMexico resumed its Mexico City-to-San Antonio flight on June 15.  The first flight was at capacity.  We expect announcements on resumption of flights from Volaris and Viva Aerobus in the coming weeks.
