Promoting Puerto Penasco: Cool Beans!

Russ and Naomi Black took Rocky Point's show on the road September 13-15, putting in an appearance at TheTradeShow in Las Vegas ("Where the Entire Travel Industry Meets Under One Roof") to promote our little corner of the world. They did this all on their own (the cost of the booth alone was $3,000!), but are starting to get support from the local community. The only other presenters at the show from Mexico were the Mexican Tourism Board and the city of Cancun. Cool beans!

What's up next for their promotion plans?
  • Quartzsite Sports, Vacation & RV Show in Quartzsite, AZ: January 16 - 24th, 2010
  • L.A. Times Travel & Adventure Show in Los Angeles, CA: February 13 – 14, 2010

As Russ put it: "A really important point to remember is that we only have a Promotion company, we aren't affiliated with any hotels, or condos, or restaurants, we are affiliated with the good people of Penasco. From the guys trying to rent their condos, to the kids selling chicklets on the beach. They all need our help. That is why we are doing this work. Please help us out!"

Every little bit, as they say. But this little bit is pretty big. Applause and a big thumbs up for Russ and Naomi!
