ITTN’s Shane Cullen is heading to the Sunshine State with Visit Florida and Discover The Palm Beaches as part of this year’s Florida Huddle.
Shane travels with Aer Lingus from Dublin to Newark. He then boards a United Airlines flight south to Palm Beach International Airport (PBI). Passing through security and pre-clearance took just a couple of minutes allowing plenty of time to enjoy the view at Dublin Airport.
Florida Huddle is the Sunshine State’s Official Travel Trade Show, showcasing the best of Florida to international and domestic tour operators, wholesalers, and media with one-on-one appointments, educational sessions, and networking. ITTN will be there reporting on the trends, offers and attractions for travellers heading to Florida.
The Palm Beaches
This year, the travel trade show is in The Palm Beaches, described as where “America’s First Resort Destination” was built.
“The Original, The One, The Only: The Palm Beaches” is about an hour north of Miami International Airport (MIA). Alternatively, downtown West Palm Beach is just 10 minutes from Palm Beach International Airport (PBI).
While Shane is there for Florida Huddle 2023, there is plenty to attract the Irish traveller. The Palm Beaches area boasts almost 76km of pristine beaches. The region has a rich history in hospitality and over 100+ family-friendly attractions. Furthermore, the Palm Beaches is known as Florida’s Golf Capital plus The Cultural Capital of Florida.
