International music agency Sound Diplomacy has partnered with Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival, Visit Franklin, and the Americana Music Triangle to present Music Tourism Convention Franklin. The two-day event, held on Sept. 21 and 22 at The Factory in Franklin, Tennessee, will bring together music and tourism executives to expand on the opportunities the industries can gain from each other.
“Music is a universal language that speaks to the world and is a key component in the decision-making process of where many travelers decide to spend their vacations,” says Ellie Westman Chin, President & CEO of Visit Franklin. “Our mission at Visit Franklin is to share Franklin, Tennessee with the world, and we are excited to be partnering with an international leader like Sound Diplomacy to not only do that but also bring together so many other destinations to share ideas and learn from one another.”
The convention will focus on various topics including Music & Destination Marketing, Music & Travel, and Music Attractions, and will feature TEDx-style talks and panel discussions from industry leaders.
The final day will conclude with an official reception at Pilgrimage Music & Cultural Festival. Attendees will also receive discounted tickets to the festival, held Sept. 23 and 24 at The Park at Harlinsdale in Franklin.
Tickets for the two-day convention cost $150 and are available at a discounted rate of $100 for current students.
