TFest announces move to Mayakoba in Mexico 7-11 May 2023

November 28, 2022

TFest, the most desirable and innovative luxury travel show in the industry today, has announced that their 2023 event will be held at the beautiful, luxurious and tranquil Fairmont Mayakoba in Mexico from 7-11 May.

For the last three years TFest has been held in Dubai, with the event being sold out months beforehand. This exciting move to Mayakoba is being made for a number of reasons.

New Markets

TFest has started a global movement to shift from the traditional to the extraordinary. They continue to lead the way in human-to-human (rather than business-to–business) events and believe that it’s time to bring the festival format to the Americas. This region is fast growing and in high demand from the global travel community, so it was the obvious choice for TFest 2023.

Shared Values

The Riviera Maya’s history and culture aligns perfectly with TFest’s core values and will inspire every aspect of the TFest experience.

  • For the Authentic Spirit – Taking influence from Mayan culture, TFest will create moments of reflection and learnings from nature.
  • For the Future – Mayakoba’s dedication to sustainability and preservation of nature is a showcase of what can be achieved in eco-friendly tourism.
  • For the Grateful Heart – TFest values the local community and is working closely with the destination and its partners to give back and pay it forward.

A Perfect Partnership

A blend of luxury and nature, Fairmont Mayakoba is a resort designed to preserve the native landscape of gardens, plants, and wildlife surrounding it. Mayakoba has also been awarded the coveted UNWTO Ulysses Prize for Responsible Tourism Development. The resort is connected to nature in a way that will ignite your spirit – and it’s the new home of TFest Chapter IV.

Christy Kuplic, Managing Director of Private Luxury Events who organise TFest commented; “I am very excited that the fourth chapter of TFest will be held at Mayakoba in Mexico 7-11 May 2023. Mayakoba is a destination that embraces and exudes the values that TFest stands for. It’s an enchanting, eco-friendly paradise that thrives in complete harmony with nature. TFest has forever shifted the expectations of a trade show. It’s now more than an event – it’s a movement that we think will become the new standard for networking events going forward. So prepare for some transformative days alongside the most innovative and influential leaders in luxury travel from across the globe.”

Marco Paramo, Area Director of Sales & Marketing, ACCOR Luxe Mexico said; ‘We’re very excited to work with TFest because they deliver the quality of experience that aligns with what Fairmont Mayakoba produces for the luxury travel market. We have just completed a multi- million-dollar renovation, and we feel that TFest is the best show to showcase everything that the property and the destination have to offer.”
