Statement by Robert Skrob, Executive Director, Florida
Association of Destination Marketing Organizations
Regarding new accountability agenda items, legal action and trade
secret reform announced today by Speaker Richard Corcoran
“Florida’s Destination Marketing Organizations (DMOs) are fully transparent and in compliance with all state and local laws. Adding more government bureaucracy and redundancy just adds costs. Our state tourism numbers are at record levels. The current structure is working.
If there are ways to further strengthen accountability, we welcome the opportunity to have a dialogue on an approach that protects the jobs of the 1.4 million Floridians whose livelihoods depend on tourism.”
