To ensure the health and safety of our community given the recent Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, we have made the decision to reschedule the second annual Coastal Georgia Tourism Conference to November 6, 2020. Registration will open in July.

Georgia’s second annual Coastal Tourism Conference will take place at the Coastal Georgia Botanical Gardens. The conference will bring together business owners, tourism officials, government representatives, and community organizations interested in learning about our state’s coastal tourism industry.

Throughout the day, attendees will have the opportunity to network with other professionals while discussing three tourism pillars identified in the Georgia Tourism 2019-2021 strategic plan, including African American heritage and culture; food, drink and Georgia Grown; and outdoor recreation and sports.

Georgia’s tourism industry drives significant growth and prosperity for its local communities, generating more than $60 billion in economic impact. The workshop, hosted by Marine Extension and Georgia Sea Grant, is designed to build a collaborative community of professionals focused on propelling the coastal tourism industry forward to provide jobs and support local economies.

Who should attend?

Business owners, tourism officials, local government representatives, elected officials, researchers and community organizations involved in tourism.


  • African American Heritage and Culture
  • Food, Drink and Georgia Grown
  • Outdoor Recreation and Sports
