Florida's International Tourism Expansion Trends

» Visit Orlando plans to expand its international marketing in Canada and Brazil. In Canada, where the organization currently targets only Toronto, it will also market in Montreal and Quebec. In Brazil, it will extend its target market from Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo to Brasilia, Recife, Belo Horizonte, Curitiba and Port Alegre. » Fort Lauderdale-Hollywood International Airport saw international passenger traffic grow 18% between 2008 and 2012, largely because of the growth of low-cost carriers with international service. » An Argentine investment group purchased the 64-room Berkeley Shore Hotel in Miami Beach for close to the $13.8-million asking price, according to a report. The group, which owns other hotels in the city, plans to renovate the hotel and add rooms.
