Spanish term or phrase: vededores
Latin American news report about guerrillas in Colombia:

"Los soldados fueron recibidos oficialmente por dos delegados del gobierno integrantes de la comisión conciliadora de paz y delegados de la Cruz Roja Internacional, además de una comisión de ***vededores*** de quince países."

This is not necessarily a real word, but its meaning should be obvious in the context. Unfortunately it is not obvious to me :(

Hazel, This might be a mistake in the original for vendedores meaning salespeople. If you can check with the client personally, I would do that.
