Courtesy Policy
The success of the Georgia Governor’s Tourism Conference, as with any conference, is dependent on the hard work and involvement of many individuals: the host community; the volunteers who serve on the program committee to develop relevant and interesting seminars; the moderators and speakers, many of whom contribute their time and expertise without payment; the sponsors who invest large amounts of time and money in hosting various aspects of the conference; and, of course, the conference attendees themselves.  To ensure a positive experience for everyone, we offer the following suggestions:  

  • Be on time for seminar sessions and events.
  • Provide speakers and presenters with your undivided attention. Limiting unnecessary conversation during presentations shows your appreciation for their efforts and is a courtesy to those seated near you.
  • Remember to turn off cellular phones or set to vibration mode prior to entering a session or meal function.
  • Please turn off all laptop and tablet devices unless taking session notes.
  • Attend all sponsored events. As a courtesy to our sponsors and in appreciation for their support, you are asked NOT to accept ANY invitation from anyone that conflicts with a sponsored event.
