Going Green and Traveling in Style on a Motorcoach

The Arkansas delegation of Travel South USA, a group of destination marketing organization (DMO) representatives and several tour operators, will “Go-Green” and take a motorcoach to Birmingham, Alabama to attend the Travel South Showcase 2010.

The Travel South Showcase is a regional trade show focused on increasing travel to and within the 12 southern states. This year’s event will take place in Birmingham, Alabama from April 10-14, 2010.

A custom motorcoach with stunning visuals will depart Little Rock, Arkansas with planned stops in Memphis, Tennessee, and Tupelo, Mississippi to pick up additional delegates and promote traveling south via motorcoach, a greener alternative to each member of a group traveling to the conference. The motorcoach, wrapped with images of Arkansas attractions, is run by Little Rock Tours.
