Boomers Will Descend on Franklin, Tennessee

SALEM, Ohio — Baby boomers are leading the charge in discovering hidden treasure destinations, and the Boomers In Groups Conference will give them a firsthand look at one with the announcement of the organization’s 2019 meeting site: Franklin, Tennessee.

Visit Franklin will welcome boomer travel planners to experience the area October 25-27, 2019, as the official host city of the Boomers In Groups Conference, a gathering of planners who focus on baby boomer group travel. The planners represent boomer organizations from across America that travel in groups.

“Boomer travel planners are going to discover Franklin, Tennessee, and the surrounding county as a must-return-to destination,” said Charlie Presley of Boomers In Groups.

Franklin has attracted a lot of buzz in the travel community lately. TripAdvisor ranked Franklin as one of the “Top 30 USA Cities to Visit.” Southern Living named Franklin one of its “Small Towns We Love.” Garden and Gun magazine called Franklin a “Small Town Escape,” and Travel and Leisure called Franklin one of “Americas Best Towns for Fall Colors.”

With that range of endorsements, it’s easy to understand the excitement building for Boomers In Groups 2019.

Delegates attending the conference will stay at the Franklin Marriott Cool Springs, which features meeting space on-site. The conference’s networking, meals and marketplace will take place just an elevator ride away from attendees’ rooms.

Franklin offers a perfect weekend getaway, with activities planned virtually every weekend of the year, and delegates will experience that destination feature with the conference’s being held on a Friday to Sunday.

“We have planned the conference to be able to partake in one of Franklin’s featured events and will announce the upcoming festival very soon,” Presley said.
