Long before smartphones and IPads, David Otto created infoCenter Alabama, the first ever, touch screen kiosk system that provided travel-related information to travelers. This new form of technology would become a major breakthrough for rural areas of Alabama to reach their intended audience in a unique way. Our friend and founding member of the Alabama-Mississippi-Tennessee Rural Tourism Conference, Dr. David Otto passed away in August 2017. David worked relentlessly and made a significant contribution to grow and revolutionize tourism in rural Alabama and beyond.
This award recognizes an individual or organization who has made a significant contribution to rural tourism over the years and helped change the tourism landscape of Alabama, Mississippi, and Tennessee.
