A Tourism Leader and off to the Martin County Fair

Having been involved with the promotion of the tourism industry in the Treasure Coast, Florida region for many years, Talkin’ Tourism host Gary Guertin has viewed the industry's revolution from a perspective few others in the area have experienced. One key aspect to the successful promotion of the hospitality industry in any region is leadership. This week, Talkin’ Tourism would like to introduce our listeners to Ed Griffith, the newly elected chairman of the Martin County Convention and Visitors Bureau. Ed has an exceptional background in the tourism industry and a track record of proven leadership. A past president of the Jensen Beach Chamber of Commerce and the Martin County Hotel/Motel Association, as well as involvement in countless other civic and community organizations over the years, Ed is the perfect leader to take the Martin County  Convention and Visitors Bureau and tourism in Martin County to the next level.  Join us to hear Ed’s thought and vision for the future.

There is one staple of Florida life (as well as in many other parts of the country) that has truly become a tradition.  That tradition is the local county fair. Martin County’s 53rd annual fair is just a little more than 1 week away. Darryl Magill, the chairman of the Entertainment Committee and the official spokesperson for the Martin County Fair and Youth Livestock Show, will be on the show to share how the fair fits into the community’s tourism fabric.

And, as usual, there will be lots of great tourism news and updates from around the block, as well as around the world!

Join us on Friday for another edition of Talkin’ Tourism. The fun begins at 10:05 a.m. and you can tune us in on WPSL 1590 AM or catch the live stream at We're looking forward to "seeing you" on the radio!
