Tifton -- Movers and shakers in Georgia's tourism industry were in Tifton this week. "It's an educational program for all of us to learn about the best practices," said Charlie Gatlin.
All of them getting up to speed on the new trends in tourism. "We're understanding that 70 percent of people make there travel plans over the internet. So web sites are becoming more and more important," said Gatlin.
A topic Governor Sonny Perdue feels strongly about. "I am a native of Georgia. I'm very proud of my state. In a campaign, you become very aware of so many things out there that so many people don't see," said Governor Perdue.
Governor Purdue says it's what makes Georgia unique that will get the people to come. "There is so many artisans and crafts people that are here in Georgia and we just have to market and the main thing is awareness."
Perdue says that Agri-tourism is the way to do it. "There are so many things people take for granted. So many things that the world would love to see. Simple things like dairy farms that kids would love to know about," said Governor Perdue.
But no matter what gets people to visit Georgia; it is the southern hospitality they will never forget. Georgia is ranked 8th in the nation for tourism. Next year's Governor's Tourism Conference will be held here in Albany.
