MOBILE, Ala. -- Two travel writer conferences will visit south Baldwin County beach communities over the next year, Gulf Shores & Orange Beach Tourism announced today.
The Midwest Travel Writers Association will send 40 writers Oct. 12-16, during the 40th Annual National Shrimp Festival.
The Society of American Travel Writers will bring 25 members for its mid-year board meeting from April 11-14, 2012.
"Through these two meetings, we will show the writers unique story ideas along the Alabama Gulf Coast, which will ultimately be included in articles covering our target markets across the Southeast and Midwest," said Herb Malone, president of the tourism association. "It's a win-win situation times two."
