Another way the VCB serves as an industry advocate is by spearheading communications efforts for the industry in the event of a crisis. We strive to manage communications to ensure accuracy of information and to minimize damage to the destination's reputation. Our efforts include visitor assistance/outreach, communications regarding hurricane preparedness, and participation in Lee Countyâ€™s emergency response team.
Did you miss this yearâ€™s Tourism Industry Hurricane Meeting? Not to worry! If you are an accommodations business, please contact Pam Brown (aka Hurricane Goddess) or call 239/338-3500 and set an appointment for her to come to your property and meet with your management team and front desk supervisors/managers. This is an opportunity to learn how the Visitor & Convention Bureau plans and responds to a weather crisis as well as how you can obtain recovery crew business for your property.
