new ideas and creative energy
BREVARD COUNTY, FLORIDA – Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism announced today it has selected Orlando public relations firm TWsquared as its agency of record.
The two-year contract is valued at more than $400,000.
Working closely with the tourism office’s marketing and sales teams, TWsquared will help drive visitation and spending at Brevard County’s many hotels, restaurants and attractions, including Kennedy Space Center Visitor Complex, Port Canaveral, the Brevard Zoo and its 72 miles of shoreline.
“We are excited to have TWsquared as a new partner in promoting the Space Coast as a great Florida destination,” said Florida’s Space Coast Office of Tourism Executive Director Rob Varley.
“We were very impressed with the new ideas and creative energy TWsquared brought to the table.”
MANAGED SOME OF CENTRAL FLORIDA’S LARGEST ATTRACTIONS
A boutique Orlando firm that specializes in public relations and business development, TWsquared and its principals have worked with some of the most recognized travel brands in the country.
The team directed the two-year launch of LEGOLAND Florida — Merlin Entertainment’s largest and most successful opening in its history — and the firm’s principals have managed some of Central Florida’s largest new-attraction openings at both Universal Orlando and SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment.
“This is a terrific fit for us,” said Orlando PR executive and TWsquared President Lorri Shaban, APR.
“Rarely do you have the opportunity to work with a destination with such a strong foundation and great assets. We’re excited about helping the Space Coast tell its story in an even more compelling way.”
