Visit Galveston’s sales team works to host meetings and conventions for all sorts of industries and groups — from correctional management staff to shell enthusiasts, beekeepers to sororities. Next month, Galveston will host its state partners and peers for the annual Texas Tourism Alliance (TTA) Summit. It will be a great opportunity to show other Texas destinations what our island has to offer.

The Summit is expected to attract more than 400 attendees Sept. 19-21. The Austin-based alliance is the primary advocate and voice for the Texas travel industry and represents a diverse membership of Texas travel destinations, accommodations, attractions, transportation and support businesses.

Mary Beth Bassett is the public relations coordinator for the Galveston Island Convention and Visitors Bureau and the Park Board of Trustees.
