Skal Members and Speakers enjoy a record-breaking summer mixer meeting attendance at I-Drive 360.
The meeting featured a special welcome by Skal Orlando Members John Stine, Director of Sales & Marketing for I-Drive 360, and Todd Andrus, Sales Manager for LEGOLAND Florida, who presented attendees with the exclusive opportunity to experience the 400-foot Orlando Eye, Madame Tussaud’s Wax Museum Orlando and the SEA LIFE Orlando Aquarium, all part of Merlin Entertainment’s new entertainment complex on Orlando’s famed International Drive. Members and guests were also invited to visit the new Skeletons: Animals Unveiled! attraction which is also located in the I-Drive 360 venue.
“This was truly a very exciting meeting for our members to experience all of these new attractions at once. As leaders in the local hotel, travel and tourism community, they will now be able to invite others and partner in their own businesses with the I-Drive 360 attractions,” said Jeff Chase, president of Skal International Orlando. “We are so grateful for I-Drive 360 and Merlin Entertainment reaching out to Skal International Orlando for this tremendous networking and business opportunity.”
