Wow, I have a great idea! Let's host some Canadian travel writers in Tampa so that our No. 1 international market can promote our destination to readers of their publications! Brilliant, eh!

In exactly one week from today, four Canadian travel writers will arrive to the Bay area to experience some of Tampa's hottest restaurants and attractions. From Sept. 18-21, I, along with my co-worker Brooke, will share some of Tampa's treasures with our new Canadian friends. Top Canadian publications that will be present during the FAM include Elite Wine, Food & Travel, City Post Magazine, The Globe and Mail, and DreamScapes Magazine. 

During the FAM, the group will rest their heads at the Westin Harbour Island and dine at Bern’s Steak House, The Bamboo Club Asian Bistro, Mise en Place and the Columbia Restaurant. They will also experience some of Tampa Bay’s hottest attractions including Tampa’s Lowry Park Zoo, Busch Gardens Tampa Bay, Canoe Escape, The Florida Aquarium, the Henry B. Plant Museum and Ybor City

Be on the lookout for these journalists as they see and tour the latest and greatest of Tampa Bay's locations and let us know if you see their stories down the road. Until next time, enjoy!
