Top 100 Committee Meets in Knoxville
ABA's 2012 Top 100 Selection Committee met in Knoxville, TN last week to choose the winning events and festivals for this year's publication. The winners will be announced in the September/October issue of Destinations Magazine.
ABA's Top 100 Events in North America is an annual compendium of the best events for group travel in the United States and Canada. Each spring, a committee of ABA-member motorcoach and tour operators selects the Top 100 Events for the subsequent year; the list is unveiled in September. Winners are chosen from hundreds of celebrations, festivals, fairs, commemorative events, and more that have been nominated by ABA members.
"I want to thank this year's selection committee for all of their hard work," said ABA Meetings & Events Coordinator Courtney Davis. "Thank you also to Charlotte Brothers and the rest of the staff at the Knoxville Tourism and Sports Corporation, as well as all of their partners for hosting the selection committee this year."
The committee enjoyed Knoxville FAM activities as part of their meeting, and visited local attractions like the Knoxville Zoo, the Women's Basketball Hall of Fame, and the Tennessee Riverboat. For a complete listing of the Knoxville FAM sponsors, please visit the Top 100 website.
