tourism day 2017sm

 Join us in Tallahassee for Florida Tourism Day.

Florida Tourism is under attack!!

Be an advocate for tourism, and join your fellow industry members for Florida Tourism Day at the Capitol. Florida Tourism Day serves as the perfect opportunity to let lawmakers know just how vital tourism is to our state and how crucial it is for them to support Florida’s No. 1 industry. Last year, Tourism Day drew more than 400 industry attendees, representing 44 Florida counties, who met with legislators and government leaders.

The purpose of Florida Tourism Day is to educate the legislature, media and Floridians about the importance of Florida’s tourism industry and the rationale for the public funding request to support tourism marketing efforts. This year’s Florida Tourism Day kicked off with speeches from Lt. Governor Carlos Lopez-Cantera, Commissioner of Agriculture Adam Putnam, Attorney General Pam Bondi, Chief Financial Officer Jeff Atwater, Senator Jack Latvala and Department of Business and Professional Regulation Secretary Ken Lawson.
