Erika, goodbye's and hello's, and a girl named Natalie

After two remote shows and because a little fish storm named Erika is meandering in the Caribbean, Talkin' Tourism host Gary Guertin and co-host Robin Hicks-Connors settle back in to the Captain’s Lounge at Harborage Yacht Club tomorrow (Friday, September 4) for the radio show's 33rd show.

With the approaching Labor Day weekend and summer officially behind us, thoughts are now quickly turning to how the Treasure Coast can maximize the upcoming winter tourism season. This week, the show will cover a number of diverse topics including, but not limited to: the first meeting of the Martin County Tourism Summit, which is designed to help focus all stakeholders on a common vision for the future of tourism in Martin County; a review of the inaugural edition of Coastal Angler Magazine’s FLAHAMA edition; a potpourri of tourism related topics from across the State; the top Treasure Coast activities and events this labor Day Weekend; and an update from Brian Carroll on the post-production of the independent children's action feature Natalie, Queen of Scots, which just wrapped filming here on the Treasure Coast.

Martin County Convention and Visitors Bureau board member and now former director of sales for the Hampton Inn and Suites-North Stuart, Nicole Wellington, will be our special guest this week. Nicole has accepted a new director of sales position at a beautiful property on Florida’s west coast and we'll be saying a few 'goodbye's'. During Nicole's year at the Stuart property, she was very active with the Martin County Hotel/Motel Association and will give her insights as to the potential of west coast/east coast collaboration of hotels and other accommodations.

A new bed and breakfast just opened in Martin County. Where is it and why is it on Robin's "to do" list?

Tune your radio dial to WPSL 1590 AM tomorrow at 10 a.m. or listen to the show via your computer at The Talkin' Tourism crew promises to keep you informed about all there is to know about tourism on Florida’s Treasure Coast, as well as points beyond.
