Last week, Vidanta Foundation held the event Vidanta Forum, a new summit that brings together some of the greatest minds and international figures from the tourism industry and other areas. The conferences ran from May 16 – 19 at The Grand Vidanta Convention Center in Nuevo Vallarta (Riviera Nayarit) and aimed to discuss key social issues and propel economic development in Mexico.  

“We are conscious of the impact that tourism has on the development of Mexico. Through the Vidanta Foundation, it is our priority to generate a dialogue with worldwide leaders that will allow us to learn about the global trends and the best practices to create a solid path toward innovation,” said Iván Chávez, Vice President of Grupo Vidanta.

Hollywood celebrities and activists Gwyneth Paltrow (Academy Award and Golden Globe winner) and Brooke Shields attended the event last Thursday, May 17. They gave a talk alongside Iván Chávez about travel, tourism and lifestyle. In perfect Spanish, Paltrow expressed her love for Mexico (see video below).

Paltrow is an ambassador for the non-profit Save the Children and is part of the board of the Robin Hood Foundation, which aims to eradicate poverty in the New York area. Shields works for international initiatives such as Healthy Child Healthy World, AIDS Life and Listen Campaign.

Other conferences held at the Vidanta Forum include Tourism and Digital Strategies, The Environment and Sustainable Tourism, Mexican Gastronomy as a Tourist Attraction and Creativity and Culture.

“When I first opened my gallery in 1986, my relationship with Vallarta Lifestyles started for the need of people to know me and, because it is one of the very few quality publications in the destination, I decided to advertise in it. There are clients that still remember me for the magazine, with whom I have had several years of relationship.”
