Martin County strengths, island properties and getaway giveaways

Another successful LIVE remote from beautiful Hutchison Island, with special thanks to guest Sharon Laing and the staff of Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort and Marina for providing the venue for today’s show.

A 16 year veteran of the property, Sharon gave listeners a great overview of the resort and its amenities. In addition to visitors from around the globe, Hutchinson Island Marriott Beach Resort and Marina has tremendous appeal for locals as well, whether it is a 'stay-cation', quiet dinner, or cocktails around the pool. Martin County is fortunate to have such a wonderful beach front property.

The first ever on-air accommodations package giveaway occurred this week, thanks to the participating properties of the Martin County Hotel/Motel Association. This week’s package was compliments of the Courtyard by Marriott–Stuart.

This week’s question was:

Based on the input from Martin County tourism industry stakeholders at the first meeting of the Tourism Summit, what are the top five Martin County Tourism strengths?

If you were listening, the answer should have been easy. Lot of hints were given and the answers were repeated several times. Good luck! Remember, the first correct answer e-mailed to is the winner, which will be announced on next week’s show.

Thanks to Greg and Carol Wyatt, Talkin' Tourism on Florida's Treasure Coast had an extended show. During the additional 30-minutes, Talkin' Tourism host Gary Guertin and co-host Robin Hicks-Connors shared information on the businesses being recognized by the Martin County Business Development Board at their annual Business Appreciation Luncheon. You will be truly amazed at the great businesses represented.

What else will you learn when you listen to the show: what’s news in the Bahamas, events and activities on the horizon for locals and visitors, and what happened This Week in Martin County History. Download it HERE.

'See' you next week!
