STS meets next week in Montgomery

The Southeastern Tourism Society (STS) will hold its spring meeting in Montgomery next week.  More than 225 tourism professionals have already registered for the March 23-25 meeting at the Renaissance Montgomery Hotel & Spa at the Convention Center.  The theme of the meeting will be “The Heart of the Economic Matter… in the heart of Alabama.” Among the speakers are Roger Dow, president of the U.S. Travel Association, and Dr. David Bronner, chief executive officer of Retirement Systems of Alabama and developer of the Robert Trent Jones Golf Trail.
STS is a non-profit organization dedicated to the promotion and development of tourism throughout the 12 Southeastern states. “The economy is affecting tourism businesses, and the STS meeting in Montgomery provides time to examine its affects and to share ideas about dealing with it.  Tourism’s goal is to prosper in the face of adversity and to bolster the economies of our member states,” said STS President Bill Hardman. The agenda for the meeting includes a tour of Montgomery on Monday, March 23, as well as a “voluntourism” project at the Montgomery Zoo.  For more information see
