Coastal Georgia Tourism Conference

Coastal Georgia Tourism Conference
Savannah, GA


The Details

Dates for the Coastal Georgia Tourism webinar series will be posted here soon. 


To ensure the health and safety of our community given the Coronavirus (COVID-19) developments, we have made the decision to cancel the in-person 2020 conference and host a series of virtual webinars in October and November. Stay tuned for updates!


Georgia’s Coastal Tourism Conference is designed to bring together business owners, tourism officials, government representatives, and community organizations interested in learning about our state’s coastal tourism industry. In lieu of hosting an in-person conference in 2020, the planning committee has decided to host a coastal tourism webinar series focused on the three pillars: African American Heritage and Culture, Outdoor Recreation and Sports, and Georgia Grown Food & Drink.

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
