Post Tours Announced for the Upcoming Select Traveler Conference

One of the primary advantages of attending the Select Traveler Conference each year is learning first-hand about new travel destinations for groups.  In the case of Nashville this year, many travel planners are already sending groups to America’s favorite city for music, but there are many new developments in Nashville that planners will be seeing and learning about.

In addition to Nashville, there are several other Tennessee destinations that are lining up to show delegates some exciting new developments as well.  All these tours are complimentary to registered Select Traveler delegates.

“Even in today’s world of online references and social media, when it comes to travel planning for groups, there is still no substitute for first-hand knowledge,” said Select Traveler Conference CEO Joe Cappuzzello.  “There will not be a better opportunity this year for travel planners to see and experience Nashville and the state of Tennessee than during this conference.  We hope to see lots of you there!”

Readers of Select Traveler magazine who are attending the conference responded to the Nashville post-tour information immediately and those are sold out.  However, three additional offerings are still available and will be open for registration through January 26, so attendees can still visit some exciting places in Tennessee.

Rutherford and Wilson Counties, located just minutes from Nashville in the heart of Tennessee, are offering a two-day trip, February 10-11, that includes the following sites and activities:
