National Travel and Tourism Week 2019 Makes Big Difference

Visit Pensacola had an exciting week celebrating National Travel and Tourism Week 2019. This year we had a record-breaking 14 teams compete for the hospitality cup – a series of team events that included relays and a mullet toss! Additionally, we awarded this year’s hospitality hero awards to five front-line staff that go above and beyond to create the Pensacola experience, and built 1,500 Pensacola Experience summer bags for underserved youth in Escambia County. Thank you to the community and our partners for taking the time and effort to donate, participate and celebrate with us this week.
