Experience Kissimmee: A Night of Travel Trade Delight in Dublin

Experience Kissimmee treated members of the travel trade to an informative, yet fun evening at the stunning Farrier & Draper on Dublin’s South William Street, last night. The event was organised by Jo Piani, Director of Luna PR & Representation, and Tony Lane, Director of Woodstock Communications, and was also attended by some of Experience Kissimmee’s partners ranging from accommodation providers to attractions in the area.

Kissimmee has long been a favourite of Irish holiday makers, offering incredible value for money for those visiting the Orlando area, but the event ensured members of the trade were well informed of the other attractions in Kissimmee, to offer their customers.

There were some amazing prizes up for grabs on the night, which saw Marble City Travel’s Gillian Purser win a 2 night stay at the Melia Celebration, 2 tickets to an evening show/ sports event and an exclusive shopping discount book. Tropical Sky’s Rachel Mcanaspie took home the second runner up prize of a 2 night stay at the Embassy Suites sunset walk, 2 tickets to a local theme park, 2 tickets to an evening show/ sports event and an exclusive shopping discount book. Winner of the grand prize of return flights for 2 with Aer Lingus, a 5 night stay at a luxury villa and tickets to Gatorland, Wild Florida, Dezerland and the Museum of Illusions went to Best4Travel’s own Elaine Massey!
