  • Hoteles Misión

descarga (3)Hoteles Misión, a 100% Mexican company founded in 1946, is looking to grow its properties from the 56 it has today, to 100 by 2020. Although 95% of its growth will take place in Mexico, the hotel chain is also looking into the U.S. market (where it already owns one property in Texas), and also Cuba and Peru. Hoteles Misión is working on new promotion strategies that lead to bookings. One example of this is “Puebleando con Misión”, a campaign based on video clips that has been working for the last three years together with the Consejo of Turistic Promotion and the government of 15 estates.This strategy sums up with a digital bet. Check out our interview with Roberto Zapata, CEO at Hoteles Misión!
