Eric Garvey, Executive Director of Florida's Space Coast Office of Tourism, predicts collections for the fiscal year ending Sept. 30 will exceed $12.8 million. Garvey credits the recent tourism surge to marketing efforts through social media channels coupled with the enhancement of brand identity for each of the major cities within the Space Coast.
