Prosser, who is a partner at Prosser Johnson and former South Carolina tourism chief, spoke to delegates at the Joint International Seminar on Tourism Product Development.

Dublin-based Tourism Development International, working under contract for the South Carolina Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism, completed South Carolina’s 8 regional tourism product development plans in 2010.
“I was honored by the invitation,” said Prosser. “It was a great opportunity to showcase the international leadership of South Carolina in the tourism industry,” he added.
Delegates from more than 20 European countries attended the seminar hosted by Ireland’s National Tourism Development Authority (Fāilte Ireland). Prosser was the only speaker from the United States.
