Pasco County, Florida -- The Pasco County Office of Tourism Development was presented with the Silver Award for their VisitPasco.net Mobile Website.
2013 Flagler Awards were awarded during the 46th Annual Florida Governor's Conference on Tourism at the Loews Royal Pacific Resort in Orlando. The "Henry" awards are named for Henry Flagler, the late 19th- and early 20th-century railroad and hotel magnate whom is considered the grandfather of Florida's tourism industry.
The Flagler Awards were established in 2000 to recognize outstanding tourism marketing in Florida. Annually, the Flagler Awards honor many of the countless individuals and organizations that help maintain and improve Florida's position as one of the world's most popular travel destinations. The awards are open to all individuals, private businesses and not-for-profit organizations offering a product or service that promotes tourism to or within the State of Florida.
Working independently, a panel of five judges evaluated the creativity, innovation, production quality and effectiveness of each entry. Based on the judges' cumulative scores, awards were presented to the top three entries in each category: the Bronze Award for the third highest scoring entry, the Silver Award for the second highest scoring entry, and for the highest scoring entry in each category, the Henry Award.
