CVB hosts family reunion workshop

Posted: Updated:
ALBANY, GA (WALB) -

Each year more than 100 family reunions and gatherings are held in the city of Albany.

The Convention and Visitors Bureau says Albany is a central location for people living in Atlanta, Orlando and Tallahassee.

They say family reunions have a large economic impact on the community, and today they held a workshop to teach people more about the planning process. 

"We have this workshop every year to help people avoid the pit falls and hurdles with planning an event so they can do it a little more easily and avoid the hurdles that someone might have who's maybe not familiar with how to do it,"

Albany has about 2200 hotel rooms to host people.
