This years Governor’s Conference took place in Broward County, Florida this past August. Film Florida once again presented the Film Florida Legends Tourism Ambassador Award during the Governor’s Conference of Tourism. The award was presented to world renowned artists Emilio Estefan Jr. and Gloria Estefan. It was an honor to present the award to such distinguished individuals in the entertainment industry.

Along with presenting the Tourism Award, Film Florida also had a booth during the entirety of the conference. Members of Film Florida including our very own Gail Morgan, were able to talk with hundreds of attendees about filming in Florida and the industry itself. It was great to be able to chat about the undeniable connections between the tourism and film industries and how both can continue to work together. We look forward to next year’s Governor’s Conference.
