For those of you that don’t know, Florida Huddle is “Florida’s foremost travel trade event.” Each year, the event moves to a different venue, alternating from city to city. The suppliers, which are mostly hotels and attractions, are all from Florida and the buyers, who are tour operators, are from all over the world. In order to be invited to the show the buyers have to book a certain amount of business to Florida.
What I really love about this show is that it is an appointment show, which enables my colleague and I to spend quality time with the buyers we select. Last night there was an amazing Opening Night Party at the The Breakers hotel.
Next year Florida Huddle is in Fort Lauderdale. We cannot wait! Before I had my four children, I used to do about 8 – 10 of these shows each year, traveling all over the world. It was an absolutely amazing experience for me! Now I limit myself to Florida Huddle and I am really having fun seeing all of my clients that I have known for over 20 years!
