Welcome Tennessee! Last year we officially expanded the Rural Tourism Conference to include the state of Tennessee. We are now the Tennessee-Alabama-Mississippi Rural Tourism Conference and for the first time in 17 years, the conference will be held in Tennessee.
Recognizing that tourism is a vital part of a community’s economic development, the Tennessee-Alabama-Mississippi Rural Tourism Conference is a collaborative effort focused on assisting smaller communities in bolstering tourism. Dynamic speakers will present innovative ideas and relevant information that attendees will find useful in facing the unique challenges of promoting rural tourism with limited budgets. This annual conference is hosted alternately between Mississippi, Tennessee, and Alabama, however, anyone associated with or interested in the rural tourism industry is invited to attend.
