The Leisure Travel Department held this year’s first Leisure Travel Forum on Wednesday at the Renaissance Vinoy Resort & Golf Club (pictured). The gathering, which is just one of a handful of meetings planned for this year, was used to broadcast upcoming opportunities for hoteliers and provide a glimpse into other VSPC sales and marketing initiatives.
Three of VSPC’s directors presented at the forum, including Rosemarie Payne, Director of Leisure Travel, who reviewed upcoming sales opportunities for April through June. Director of Internet Marketing Deborah Holland discussed VSPC’s new mobile website, while Director of Hospitality Education Rhonda Sanborn highlighted a variety of workshops she is planning for local industry partners.
The event’s keynote speaker, Mr. Ford Kyes of ActionCOACH Pinellas, spoke about applying new skills and guiding principles for exceptional hospitality marketing. Kyes presented innovative ideas focused on leadership development and growing profitability for tourism-related companies of all sizes.
