"We're calling this roadshow 'Spirit of VR' because more than ever before 2020 has proven that you simply cannot dampen the vacation rental industry's spirit of hospitality," said Rebecca Lombardo, vice president of sales and marketing for TruPlace. "Although the pandemic has been particularly crippling for many segments of travel, the vacation rental industry is leading the industry's comeback with many drive-to vacation destinations seeing record number of visitors. Between servicing these guests on what has often been reduced staffing levels, and navigating new cleaning procedures, governmental regulations, and a devastating hurricane season, this summer has been particularly taxing, so we're hitting the road to show our support for our clients and these companies who are working tirelessly for their guests right now."

In what can only be described as a tropical themed tail-gate environment, event attendees and their families will be welcomed at each stop by a decked-out RV together with lounge chairs, hammocks, and corn hole games, along with complimentary food trucks during each events official happy hour gatherings.
