Get Ready for VISIT FLORIDA & TTG Media’s Florida Fest!
Some exciting news for next week as our client, VISIT FLORIDA, in association with TTG Media, will be launching its very first Florida Fest.
Welcome to our sneak preview of the VISIT FLORIDA and TTG Florida Fest…
Think of a host of events in a virtual format, spanning 5-days – from October 5th to the 9th – that delves into Florida’s 825 miles of award-winning and famed beaches. Three national parks a whole host of exotic wildlife call home. A whopping 175 state parks, and a mind-blowing 700 natural springs. That is, of course, without even mentioning its world-class theme parks. After all, Florida isn’t just a state, it’s a state of mind.
TTG Florida Fest is inviting travel agents, tour operators, and other buyers to participate in events ranging from training, sessions, themed masterclasses, and senior-level panel discussions. There’s also a virtual beer tasting session and yoga session.
Below, you’ll find the schedule for the week, all of which you can register for here for free. Hope to see you there!
