Sep 14, 2022

St. Pete-Clearwater International Airport (PIE) made an impressive showing at the 2022 Florida Governor’s Conference taking home “The Henry” award for Creativity in Public Relations during the Flagler Awards Ceremony. Created by VISIT FLORIDA and named after pioneering developer and industrialist Henry Flagler, the Flagler Awards honor stellar tourism marketing that helps position Florida as a top travel destination.

PIE was honored for its reunion activation inspired by a friendship from the stands of Super Bowl® LV. Improving the airport’s recognition among locals and incoming travelers, and a chance occurrence at 2021’s biggest sporting event provided the perfect opportunity to create a new kind of cross-country connection.

Airport Air Service Development and Marketing Director, Jeff Clauss said, “We are honored to receive such a prestigious recognition in the competitive and innovative Florida Tourism industry. We believe our new branding reflects who we are and how our customers feel about us.  I am very proud of our airport team and our partnership with our agency, Starmark.”
