The first annual Green Expo held in Huatulco at Hotel Las Brisas was rated a success by exhibitors and visitors. There were 17 exhibitors signed up for the 3 day event, which occurred the last weekend in February. They included green building components, crafts, organic foods and household products created from sustainable materials and many organizations involved in keeping Huatulco on the path of sustainability.

Huatulco dignitaries, Lic. Verónica Espinoza, Directora de Promoción Turística, Representante del Secretario de Turísmo y Desarrollo Económico del Estado de Oaxaca, C. César Jacobo Martinez Lavariega, Agente Municipal de Sta Cruz Huatulco, Lic. Alfredo Gomez Aguirre, Delegado de FONATUR Huatulco, Sra. Yvonne Kraak, Presidenta de la Asociacion de Hoteles de Huatulco, participated in the ribbon cutting opening ceremony. They all agreed this event needs to grow here in Huatulco and would assist in whatever way they could. Exhibitors are already gearing up for Green Expo Huatulco 2013. The dates will be announced soon.

Thank you to all the exhibitors, dignitaries, attendees and volunteers who participated in the success of the first Green Expo Huatulco 2012.
