Escambia tourism marketing may go to new group

Escambia County will consider a proposal to take tourism marketing away from the Greater Pensacola Area Chamber of Commerce.

The "Escambia County Destination Marketing Organization," a group of hotel operators, is pushing for the change.
They want the county to create an independent board that will focus only on tourism.
The chamber has managed tourism marketing for 25 years.
But some county commissioners and hotel owners have recently questioned how effectively the chamber is handling that duty.
