San Francisco, Calif. (PRWEB) November 22, 2013
The International Tour Management Institute (ITMI), has chosen the beautiful Renaissance Nashville Hotel as the venue for its 27th annual symposium, to be held January 26th to 30st.
The ITMI Symposium attracts tourism industry professionals from around the world. It is the only travel industry conference that brings together tour directors and guides, domestic and international tour operators, event planners, destination marketing organizations, travel writers and other industry stakeholders for interactive seminars and networking. It is an ideal opportunity for Tennessee to showcase its destinations and attractions to a captive audience of tourism professionals.
“The beautiful Renaissance Nashville Hotel is an exceptional setting for the ITMI Symposium,” states Ted Bravos, CEO of ITMI. “Its recently acquired convention center property, which is connected to the hotel, provides us with ample on-site exhibition space and ballrooms for our seminars and meetings.”
Dedicated meet and greet time allows exhibitors and sponsors to engage tour operators and tour planners in productive dialogues about itineraries for forthcoming tours. For many destinations and attractions, this can quickly result in new business.
The ITMI Symposium attracts leading tour operators such as Destination America, World Strides, Adventures by Disney, Tauck World Discovery, Globus Family of Brands, Cosmos, Collette Vacations, Princess and Holland America Cruise lines to name but a few. Group Tour Media’s editorial team will also be covering the event and delivering follow-up articles in its family of print and online publications.
Since 1976, ITMI has been America’s premier training and certification program for professional tour directors, guides and travel staff.
