The Mexico Tourism Board brings together the resources of federal and state governments, municipalities, and private companies to promote Mexico's tourism attractions and destinations internationally. Created in 1999, the MTB functions as an executive agency of Mexico’s Ministry of Tourism, with autonomous management and the broad participation of the private sector. The MTB has eight offices throughout North America: Chicago, Houston, Los Angeles, Miami, Montreal, New York, Vancouver, and the head office in Washington, DC. These offices are dedicated to support the wholesalers, travel agents, airlines, and hotel chains that serve Mexico. Contact Celia Cruz at 202-265-9020 or visit www.visitmexico.com.
