This year the Florida Trust for Historic Preservation is partnering with VISIT FLORIDA, the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association, Florida Attractions Association, Florida Association of RV Parks and Campgrounds, the Florida Association of Convention & Visitors Bureau, and the Florida Association of Museums for Florida Tourism Day.
As you may know, 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 public funding. It is the perfect day to let our lawmakers know just how vital tourism is to our state and how crucial it is for them to support Florida’s No. 1 industry.
Historic Preservation is a VITAL PART of Tourism. The Florida Trust has a full day of visits planned for January 18th and NEEDS you to attend.
Please register today (deadline January 10th)! Meet with your colleagues from around the state, enjoy a CEO briefing and then visit your Legislators in their Tallahassee Offices. After your work is done – come to a “Street Party” on South Adams and enjoy the festivities.
Your participation is critical to educate and remind the legislators that historic preservation is an important component of Tourism and has a tremendous economic impact.
