KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (PRWEB) October 14, 2020
Tourism partners from across the Tennessee River Valley watershed will participate in the 2020 America’s Great Loop Cruising Association’s annual conference. This year’s event will be virtual due to social distancing practices during this time of COVID.
“The Tennessee River is part of the Great Loop’s Inland Rivers Segment,” says Explore TRV spokesperson, Julie Graham. “This 692-mile route is a popular waterway during the fall and winter seasons for ‘loopers.’ We are delighted that the partners from Knoxville and Kentucky will be on hand to answer questions about the cities and sites along the route. Both Shera and Rachel have a great deal of experience on the waterway boating and locking through the dams.”
The ExploreTRV booth will have downloadable pdfs of visitor information and links to the partner websites. The organization is also sponsoring the photo booth for attendees. This year’s event sold out.
