Coastal Mississippi Hosts Customer Advisory Board

COASTAL MISSISSIPPI (October 16, 2019) – Coastal Mississippi will be hosting a Customer Advisory Board, comprised of 13 hospitality industry leaders from across the US. This initiative is taking place one year after the inaugural Customer Advisory Board, and these experienced industry professionals will be participating in meetings across the tri-county region over the next three days. These seasoned hospitality experts will provide strategic feedback and advice on how to advance Coastal Mississippi’s leverage of sales, marketing, communications, and operational activities. The Customer Advisory Board is comprised of a diverse variety of industry professionals, including top-tier meeting planners, travel media, and top executives with organizations such as Expedia, TripAdvisor, ConferenceDirect, and Destinations International.

“The involvement of each of these esteemed Customer Advisory Board members is extremely valuable to our organization and played a crucial role in our rebranding process last year. We are looking forward to their feedback and suggestions one year on, and to show them how the destination has progressed since our brand launch in March of this year,” said Milton Segarra, CEO of Coastal Mississippi.

“We are honored to have these highly experienced professionals on the Coast and look forward to their feedback. These insights will help to guide Coastal Mississippi and lay the foundation for the future success of the tourism industry on The Secret Coast,” said Nikki Moon, Board President of Coastal Mississippi.

The Kliman Group, a leading global communication consulting service, will be facilitating and managing the Customer Advisory Board meetings. Following this process, The Kliman Group will be compiling a comprehensive report once the meetings have concluded.
