Visit Savannah’s president Joe Marinelli and director of international sales Mindy Shea, recently attended Brand USA’s Travel Week in London. The annual event brings together key players in the U.S., U.K., and European travel industry to discuss trends, challenges, innovations, and the opportunity to drive future visitation to the United States. The exclusive event offered hand-picked buyers from across Europe, and Shea met with nearly 40 companies in one-to-one appointments throughout the week. Marinelli participated in the event’s CEO track, which included aviation roundtables, keynote speakers, and key topic strategy sessions. He also led meetings with the media, all carefully selected for this event.
Visit Savannah, along with partners from the Savannah Hilton Head International Airport and the Atlanta CVB, hosted a very successful client dinner for 25 tour operators at a southern-style barbeque restaurant. Guests not only experienced the best in southern cuisine but also the level of hospitality that’s the hallmark of our destinations.
