Inverotel saca músculo mientras Mallorca sufre una oleada de problemas | Noticias de Análisis, Hoteles

Hotel lobbies are showing an unequal influence in recent days, with the example of Inverotel showing muscle by hosting a significant visit from Mexico, in contrast to the FEHM in Mallorca, where they are unable to get politicians to fix a series of problems that devalue the destination such as garbage collection, street vending, airport collapse, insecurity, the prohibition of beach bars, or the demonization of the sector from the authorities.

Inverotel, chaired by Encarna Piñero, has scored a great goal by having Mara Lezama’s first trip abroad as governor of Quintana Roo, where Cancun and the Riviera Maya are located, begin with an official visit to the big hoteliers Balearics.

The value of this tour can also be seen in the fact that Lezama stood for the elections for the Morena party of the federal president of Mexico, Andrés Manuel López Obrador (AMLO), who has been repeatedly attacking Spanish investment in his country, despite having been responsible for unparalleled job creation and prosperity.

In addition, the symbolism of this trip increases, as he has been detailing throughout this week REPORTUR.mxwith the fact that the elected governor has come hand in hand with the outgoing governor, Carlos Joaquín González, who sounds like a substitute for Miguel Torruco as Secretary of Tourism of Mexico.

The agenda of both political leaders has been taken over by the main tourist companies in the Balearic Islands, from Riu to Bahía Príncipe with their first swords, including World2Meet (Gabriel Subías) and Palladium (Abel Matutes), as well as visits to Barceló (Ávoris), Iberostar or Melia.

A similar tour also showed the strength of Inverotel two years ago when the then recently appointed new Minister of Tourism of the Dominican Republic, David Collado, traveled a few days after being sworn in to meet with the first swords of the vacation niche on a planetary scale. , which is based in Mallorca.

But in contrast, the influence of the FEHM in Mallorca continues to be evident with the cascade of problems that are afflicting the perception of a quality tourist product on the island, and all of which are the responsibility of the authorities, such as garbage collection, street vending, airport collapse, insecurity, the prohibition of beach bars, or the demonization of the sector from the rulers themselves.

The Bay of Alcudia and Palma are where some of these problems are concentrated, without the politicians doing anything to remedy it beyond repeatedly referring to the sector, overweighting its negative aspects, such as saturation and overcrowding, and even asking for limits on flights or directly prohibiting the arrival of cruise ships, thus constantly turning a deaf ear to the requests of business associations.

The contrast between the achievements of both lobbies, therefore, is being very evident, especially these days, because while the Caribbean gets the main state politicians of the two largest Latin American destinations to cross the pond to meet with the most powerful hoteliers, the Majorcan shows incapable of being heard or to fix problems or to contain the stigmatization of tourism that is promoted for society by the rulers themselves.
