Join Us For a Trip to Georgia in April

Have you always wanted to experience the top attractions in southern Georgia? Are you looking for ways to learn more about trip possibilities in Georgia and have a great time doing it? Do you have a few days to see Georgia’s Plantation Trace region firsthand in April? Would you like to spend a few days with executive staff of The Group Travel Leader magazine while you’re at it?

If so, we have just the opportunity for you.

The Georgia Department of Tourism is inviting up to 20 of our travel planner readers to enjoy a three-day site inspection trip in and around its Plantation Trace region, April 10-12. Qualified travel planners will be guests of the Georgia Tourism staff and will enjoy visiting the communities of Valdosta, Thomasville and Albany.

And once you get to Georgia, all your expenses are 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 Georgia’s Plantation Trace,” said publisher Mac Lacy. “Brian and Kelly will accompany our Georgia 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 Georgia with our staff and meet some wonderful hosts from the state. It’s going to be a lot of fun for everyone involved.”

All accommodations, sightseeing, transportation and meals are included once participants arrive in Georgia. No travel expenses to and from Georgia will be reimbursed.

This readership event and site inspection tour is limited to 20 qualified travel planners. Applicants will complete a brief travel profile that will be used by Georgia Tourism staff to select attendees.
