VISIT JACKSON SPOTLIGHT
Visit Jackson 2019 Sales FAM Tour

During September, Visit Jackson, along with the help of industry partners, held a Visit Jackson FAM Tour. Twenty-seven meeting planners from within the State of Mississippi joined the Industry for two and a half days to rediscover their Capital City as a viable meeting and conference destination. The meeting planners were shown some of Jackson’s finest event venues, including the newly opened Faulkner building where they were personally welcomed by Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lumumba. The sixth-floor rooftop event space, known as The Top, offers an unbeatable view of the City with Soul.

“The 2019 Visit Jackson FAM tour gave my business partner and myself a fresh look at Jackson. Although we live in the metro area, this tour allowed us to see the guest rooms, venues and restaurants that our clients and association members would enjoy when visiting the City with Soul. This tour truly gave us a new appreciation of the city that I live in and love.” – Bryce Yelverton, Yelverton Consulting
