On the Road Again: Treasure Coast Business Summit

Talkin’ Tourism will be on the road Friday. We were invited to broadcast live from the 4th Annual Treasure Coast Business Summit, which is being conducted at the Port St. Lucie Civic Center.

This annual event brings together small and mid sized business, along with a host of great speakers and informative seminars.  As we know, tourism, the overall largest employer globally, plays a  very important role in the attraction of new businesses to a community or region. Talkin' Tourism show hosts Gary Guertin and Robin Hicks-Connors hope to grab interviews with attendees and some of the guest presenters. Speakers include former Florida Senate President Ken Pruitt, credit industry expert Douglas Muir, Greta Schultz, president of West Palm Beach based Schultz Business SELLutions, entrepreneur Michael Altshuler, TD Bank regional president Kevin Gillen, and's vice president of technology Greg Bray.

To complete the business package, this week National Travel and Tourism Week has been being celebrated around the county.  Representing the Treasure Coast will be Rozeta Mahboubi, the executive director of the Martin County Convention and Visitors Bureau and Charlotte Bireley, the tourism manager for the St. Lucie County Tourism Development Council.

All the usual (and sometimes unusual) show features will be there as well, including upcoming activities, Bahamas updates and more so tune in tomorrow (Friday, May 11) at 10:05 am on WPSL 1590 am or the live stream at

See you in the morning!
