Colin Brodie, Director, Visit Florida, London, told Irish Travel Trade News: “Florida Huddle 2015 was fantastic, so focused and so well organised. It’s great to have all our Florida partners under one roof, in such a relaxed atmosphere but with loads of work done. As well as 44 quality appointments, there were also numerous networking opportunities at the various evening events.”

Will Seccombe, Visit Florida President and Chief Executive, said: “With over 15,000 meetings being held between our Florida partners and travel trade and media partners, we are well on our way to establishing Florida as the No.1 travel destination in the world.”
