QuitoThe arrival of the metro will also improve Quito’s positioning as a MICE destination, as the route will pass near the Congress Center.

The new metro will connect Quitumbe to El Labrador, for a total of 15 stations. These stations will be strategically located in relation to the capital’s tourist spots (La Carolina, El Ejido, La Alameda…), but also for business travelers. Indeed, the project should also promote the attractiveness of Quito for trade fairs and conventions. ” This advance will also benefit Quito’s positioning as a MICE destination, since the El Labrador station is located near the Quito Metropolitan Convention Center, facilitating access for participants to the various congresses, conventions, trade fairs and exhibitions,” emphasize Quito Turismo officials. This first underground transportation system in Ecuador will also contribute to the sustainability of the destination.
