Specific Market Info:Argentina, a Federal Republic, is the second largest country in South America and the first largest Spanish speaking nation.  It has a population of 42 million inhabitants, of which 1/3 resides in the province and capital city of Buenos Aires. Because of its stability, market size and increasing share of the high-tech sector, Argentina is classified by investors as a middle emerging economy, and the 3rd one in Latin America.  It is a member of the G 20, as well as a founding member of United Nations and Mercosur. Argentina is rich in resources, has a well-educated workforce and is one of South America’s largest economies.   The Argentine inhabitant has a high cultural level, is middle class and is regarded, internationally, as a discerning traveler seeking quality and good price.

Argentinians are frequent travelers. Due to its origins, the main destination has been always Europe (Key countries: Spain, Italy, UK, France, Germany, and Holland) but for the last 15-20 years, and due to an intensive marketing campaign and convenient airfares, the US has gained popularity (Key States: Florida, New York, California, and Nevada). Argentinean travelers mainly use travel agents for their bookings and prefer to prepay services in order to secure the exchange rate.  The number of internet users is growing rapidly, but mainly to obtain information. The majority of Argentinians are still reluctant to use ca redit card for payment on the web and they return to the travel agent to close their travel operation. Despite economic/political crisis or high inflation Argentinians have always managed to quickly recover and initiate travel plans; in 2013 ,the number of outbound travelers increased 17% for European destinations and 19% for the USA.
