Rincon Argention
- Ileana De Marziani

“I became a member of the GMCVB over a year ago. I have found that the Bureau provides us, the business owners, with great opportunities to advertise our business. I hosted a Member Mixer and was able to show a whole new group of people my business. I participated in Miami Spice and during these two months, sales consequently increased, and new customers were made. I was also part of a sales mission to Argentina. After this trip, I was contacted by a tour operator from Buenos Aires and we are now partnering to do a sales promotion this coming year. Last but not least, I can’t forget to mention the Bureau’s helpful staff, who have helped us to target the GMCVB programs and promotions that will make most of our membership dollars.”
