It's back!

After a year online, the country's first and oldest state tourism conference is back - and in person - at beautiful Lake Lanier August 30 - September 1, 2021.

The Georgia Governor's Tourism Conference is the premier educational and networking event for the state's tourism and hospitality industry. Presented by Explore Georgia, the state's destination marketing organization, the conference provides invaluable opportunities for networking and knowledge-sharing.

Hear from speakers on a diverse range of topics focused on moving Georgia's tourism industry beyond recovery. You'll have a chance to problem-solve and exchange ideas with peers, network with industry experts, hear from globally renowned speakers, and get inspired by quality content.

With more than 500 tourism and hospitality professionals in attendance each year, this event continues to be Georgia's largest tourism conference. All tourism professionals are welcome! Attendees include industry partners and leaders who represent nearly every DMO/CVB in the state as well as sectors such as attractions, lodging, food and beverage, education, and government.

As the signature event for Georgia's tourism industry, this is the event of the year if you want to learn tourism best practices and marketing strategies from global experts, meet with influential travel marketers, and are eager to reconnect with your tourism industry colleagues.

Register now! Because space is limited, tickets will sell out fast.

We look forward to seeing you there!
