VISIT FLORIDA, the state’s official source for travel planning, has awarded a Small Business Grant to the Palm Beach Poetry Festival for the 2013- 2014 Fiscal Year, which began July 1, 2013. “The purpose of these grants is to help non- profit entities and local governments stretch their tourism marketing dollars in an effort to expand cultural, heritage, rural and nature tourism activities in Florida,” said Will Seccombe, President & CEO of VISIT FLORIDA. “We were pleased that VISIT FLORIDA and Enterprise Florida selected us from among a large number of grant applicants, during their most competitive grant cycle to date,” said Miles Coon, founder and director of the award-winning Palm Beach Poetry Festival. “These funds will be used for our 10th annual Festival next January and will help us better position and market Delray Beach and Palm Beach County as a desirable destination.” VISIT FLORIDA, a private/public partnership, is Enterprise Florida’s day-to-day operating corporation for tourism.
