Florence Ambassador Program

The Ambassador program will be providing training to the hospitality industry in 2016.

Program Benefits
Get the tools and knowledge necessary to create a more memorable visitor experience, and you’ll reap the benefits! The certification provides you with a meaningful, industry-recognized credential that is visible to family, friends, employers, co-workers and visitors! Display your certificate and wear your name tag with pride ─ it’s a great conversation starter and shows visitors you’re certified!

We'll help you stay ‘In The Know’ with regular updates about new developments or other happenings in your area. Gain first-hand knowledge of things visitors ask about!

Join us each month to visit sites in the area. Visit three sites and pass a quiz to receive your Florence Tourism Ambassador certificate and name tag. For every three additional site visits, you’ll receive an extra star to wear with pride!
