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.

“Vallarta Lifestyles is really well positioned. We are aware of that because we have seen people who arrive to our jewelry with the issue or the advertising in hand asking about the product that is featured there. This dynamic is really interesting for us and makes us glad”.

“Advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is an easy and direct way to reach all of the visitors and new residents that arrive to the destination. Of the 30 years that the magazine has been in circulation, we have been advertising for 23 years and without any doubt, it has been worthy for the big positioning that we have achieved. Besides, the quality of contents its unique in this area”.

“One of the biggest benefits of advertising in Vallarta Lifestyles is that a lot of readers keep it as a bible. People have arrived to our gallery looking for the pieces that are in the advertisements published 5 or 6 years ago, and that’s really valuable for us. Besides being an excellent magazine where is possible to find the newest in the destination, it is a publication dedicated to the public we want to reach and keep”.
