The long-awaited reopening of hotels to all visitors, beaches and area businesses took effect with many restrictions and conditions in place on Tuesday, May 26. If you haven't yet, please study all the latest Broward County Emergency Orders, and especially the list of attachments for specific industry sectors, for guidance on what is needed for you to successfully restart operations.
Despite the immense hardships caused by the shutdown of businesses and services, our industry is resilient. To be successful, we all must convey to our customers that our destination is a safe, clean and welcoming place to visit. This will be a key element of our recovery marketing messaging.
In support of Broward County’s hospitality industry and business community, Visit Lauderdale launched the Safe + Clean pledge in collaboration with the Greater Fort Lauderdale Alliance, the Florida Restaurant & Lodging Association (FRLA), the Greater Fort Lauderdale Chamber of Commerce and the Greater Hollywood Chamber of Commerce. All hotels, attractions, restaurants, shops and other businesses and organizations are encouraged to Take the Safe + Clean Pledge.
Here are important resources for you to study and adapt into your revised operations plans.
The future of Greater Fort Lauderdale and our tourism industry is coming into focus, and we at Visit Lauderdale are focused on you. Watch below as we share our extensive recovery plan for the destination and how to be a part of it.
