Partners in Tourism Awards

Mike Collins Charlotte Squawks CRVA Partners in Tourism Awards

As a fellow CRVA/Visit Charlotte Partner, I’m always thrilled to attend the annual Partners in Tourism Awards breakfast. The event recognizes the top hospitality and business professionals that directly impact tourism in the Charlotte region. This year, I got the chance to both the event and cover the ceremony; can’t get much better than that! Always excited to work with the Visit Charlotte team, and so honored to be a part of this great organization.
