The event will begin at 12:00 pm at Visit Orlando’s Official Visitor Center located at 8102 International Drive Orlando, Florida 32819 then continue to the ICON Park Orlando where attendees will “hunt” for clues.

The scavenger hunt is sponsored in part by DMO’s (Destination Management Organizations) around the state. Visit Orlando, Visit Tampa, the St Augustine TDC and Lee County VCB / The Beaches of Ft Myers and Sanibel will be there to provide questions of their destination during the scavenger hunt. DMO’s will also be providing a $500 vacation package to winners. Winners will be drawn randomly from cards that are correctly completed during the scavenger hunt.

Our goal is to promote the many things we have in Florida to our hospitality industry workers, and we are excited to be partnering with many of our DMO’s to offer this special event for the hardworking “Ambassadors” of our state. “states Keith Charlton, Director, Florida HIA”.
