Mango’s first stop:  World Travel Market, London.

Over the course of several days, Mango posed with loads of travel industry professionals, Visit Tampa Bay President & CEO Santiago Corrada and VISIT FLORIDA President and CEO Will Seccombe.

“Mango is a cute, fun way to connect with travelers to Tampa Bay, which already home to hundreds of manatees every winter,” Corrada said. “She reminds everyone of the treasures awaiting them in Tampa Bay.”
