As we re-calibrate business for the new normal, learn how travel advisors can help you diversify your distribution strategy and add higher value, higher yielding customers to your recovery planning.
We will hear from one of the largest travel agency networks in the United States on their view of the stages of travel recovery. They will share recent survey results from both travel advisors and known travelers of member travel agencies with the latest insights and guidance. And we will learn how to embrace and work with travel advisors and travel agency networks to amplify our local marketing messages and help us to accelerate our recovery efforts.

Update Your Offers
Visit Orlando has identified special offers as one of the key pieces of information travelers will be looking for as they begin to think about getaways and vacations. This could be a buy one, get one free, kids eat free, no resort fee, family 4-pack, etc.
To enhance that experience, Visit Orlando is encouraging members to go to the portal and add or update their offers in Visit Orlando Deals, Florida Resident and Military. If you have questions on updating your offers in the Member Portal, please contact MemberRelations@visitorlando.com. And as we know some of our members are offering Healthcare & First Responder offers, we will be including these as well. The Healthcare & First Responder offers can be emailed to Molly.Donovan@visitorlando.com.
Promote Your Father’s Day Offers or Events
Father’s Day is June 21, and Visit Orlando is celebrating. If your business has special holiday offers or events, let us know ASAP for potential inclusion in an upcoming blog and social media promotion! Please send details to Nate.Shelton@VisitOrlando.com.
Member Listings Enhanced to Include Safety Information
Your member listings are being enhanced to include a link to the page on your website showcasing your Safety & Cleaning protocols. These will provide visitors to Orlando with a positive picture of what you’re doing to keep them safe.
