Join Film Florida at the Annual Florida Governor’s Conference on Tourism in Tampa. The Governor’s Conference is hosted by VISIT FLORIDA and will be held Wednesday, August 28 – Friday, August 30, 2024 at the Tampa Convention Center. Film Florida will participate in the Governor’s Conference with a booth and materials to educate tourism stakeholders on our shared marketing and tourism goals for the state of Florida.

The annual Florida Governor’s Conference on Tourism (GC) is the premier educational conference for the Florida tourism industry. The conference brings together tourism industry professionals, advertising agencies, travel experts and state leaders to explore the latest trends and opportunities for the industry. GC will give attendees the opportunity to continue both professional and personal development by featuring dozens of specialized speakers both on the main stage as well as in breakout sessions. With nine+ hours of dedicated networking opportunities for attendees, GC is sure to provide ample time for new connections and potential business opportunities.
