SALEM, Ohio — Travel planners with a focus on boomer and mature groups are invited to experience Gwinnett, Georgia, and attend Boomers in Groups (BiG), an event designed to increase knowledge and talent in tourism. Explore Gwinnett will host the three-day event, where activities will center around networking and exploring area tourism sites.
BiG holds its annual event in various locations across the country to help group travel planners expand their destination knowledge. Travel planners qualify to attend by acting as leaders of any group of boomer travelers.
“We enjoy networking with the hundreds of travel groups we meet at BiG,” said Charlie Presley, the organization’s co-founder.
BiG began the BiG Travel Weekend 15 years ago as a way for group travel planners to network, and it has evolved into an event that now features a destination experience as well as a marketplace where group travel planners have appointments with travel industry representatives.
“We love seeing travel planners and industry partners develop new relationships and continue existing friendships at BiG Travel Weekend,” said Presley. Many of the attending groups use the annual event to continue and revitalize their networking with fellow travel planners. It is not uncommon to have groups from different states get together at BiG to plan larger tour programs for their group.
Explore Gwinnett will host BiG and the BiG Travel Weekend November 4-6, 2022. Contact Janine Emanuel at 800-628-0993 or firstname.lastname@example.org for details or questions.
