LONDON -- Florida's Palm Beach County just might have the most
popular exhibit here at World Travel Market.
As the world waits for news of the U.S. presidential election
recount taking place in the county, tourism officials manning the
Palm Beach booth here are taking the notoriety in stride -- and
with a sense of humor.
"We set up a 'Vote Here' box at our booth, and we've been
inundated with questions related to the election," a spokeswoman
for Palm Beach County said, adding, "We've had people of all
nationalities asking us all kinds of questions. A presidential
election is of interest to the whole world. It's really remarkable
what's happening. In the end, I think the process will be a good
thing for Americans."
Will it attract more people to the Palm Beach County
"It already has," said the spokeswoman, "and the show just
opened this morning."
Observers at World Travel Market, which is being held in
London's Earls Court Exhibition Center through Nov. 16, will be
waiting for the results from the "Vote Here" box at the Palm Beach
