Outstanding Tourism students
In the master thesis “offer of the historical center of the CDMX for tourism of the elderly”, by which obtained the Special Category award for Best Academic Project, Ricardo Salgado chose 15 attractions like the Palace of Fine Arts, the House of the tiles and the Palacio de Iturbide to apply the methodology of study based on national and international standards and recommendations.
“It is intended that the management companies of the campuses see their areas of opportunity, apply the recommendations to make their spaces accessible to the elderly and increase their economic outpouring,” explained the polytechnic student.
He stressed that although most seniors have limitations and as time goes by they are more vulnerable, that should not be reflected when looking for entertainment.
He mentioned that tourism activity and economic outpouring of the sector in the world are now higher among older adults with purchasing power, because they have time, few family obligations and desire, coupled with that they are willing to spend more for a service of quality.
Ricardo Salgado considered that the information should be visualized to plan prospectively and to exercise the modifications in the attractions and destinations of the city and the country.
