Experience Columbus and Destination Cleveland are inviting up to 20 of our travel planner readers to enjoy a five-day site inspection trip July 10-14. Qualified travel planners will be guests of the two cities’ tourism staffs and will enjoy visiting favorite attractions such as the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in Cleveland and the new National Veterans Memorial and Museum in Columbus.

And once you get to Ohio, all your expenses will be covered.

“Join The Group Travel Leader’s executive editor, Brian Jewell, and Kelly Tyner, our director of sales and marketing, for this fun and educational site-inspection trip to experience the best of Columbus and Cleveland,” said publisher Mac Lacy. “Brian and Kelly will accompany our hosts on this trip and will be sharing their travel experiences with everyone in attendance.

“Brian and Kelly will be highlighting the trip in real time on social media, and Brian will write an article on this tour for publication in The Group Travel Leader magazine,” said Lacy. “Tour participants will have the opportunity to share their impressions and experiences about Columbus and Cleveland with our staff and meet some wonderful hosts from the state. It’s going to be a lot of fun for everyone involved.”

The trip begins and ends in Columbus. All accommodations, sightseeing, transportation and meals are included once participants arrive in Columbus. No travel expenses to and from Columbus will be reimbursed.
