Visit Florida Entertains at Chapter One, Visit USA Entertains at The Church

Sue Marshall and Colin Brodie of Visit Florida hosted their annual lunch for Irish travel trade representatives at Chapter One last week – and those attending seemed to agree that the always-excellent venue surpassed itself in the cuisine and presentation. Later in the evening, the Visit USA Committee Ireland hosted its inaugural Agent Appreciation Night at The Church.
