“This is an ideal time to present The Cul­tural & Her­itage Tourism Sum­mit as a way to help small busi­nesses un­der­stand what tourism is all about and the tremen­dous fi­nan­cial ben­e­fits that tourism can drive into their busi­nesses as well as cre­at­ing jobs for lo­cals. The GFLCVB is ex­cited about part­ner­ing with CHAT to present this first-of-it­skind, unique plat­form that will bring to­gether tourism pro­fes­sion­als with small busi­nesses and at­trac­tions for ex­plor­ing col­lab­o­ra­tion and busi­ness de­vel­op­ment op­por­tu­ni­ties in the tourism in­dus­try,” said Al­bert Tucker, Vice Pres­i­dent, Mul­ti­cul­tural Busi­ness De­vel­op­ment, Greater Fort Laud­erdale CVB.
