Visit Florida, Orlando-Orange County CVB suspend ads

TALLAHASSEE, Fla. -- Visit Florida, the state's public-private tourist promotion concern, suspended print and broadcast advertising in the U.S. and Canada until further notice, Bud Nocera, executive vice president and chief operating officer, said.

The decision was based on "the uncertainties of travel at this point in time," Nocera said.

Meanwhile, the Orlando-Orange County Convention & Visitors Bureau suspended its national cable TV schedule of spot ads, pending a meeting with industry representatives to determine "its next steps," Peter Cranis, vice president of consumer marketing, said.
