Albany’s signature Rock, Roll & Weekend gets big kudos from Southeast Tourism Society

By   /   July 20, 2011  /   Comments

Rock, Roll & Run in Downtown Albany has been selected as one of the Southeast Tourism Society’s Top 20 Events for March 2012!

We just received this great news regarding the application that was submitted in June. The event highlights all of the Downtown Albany activities the first weekend of March including the Mardi Gras Music Festival, Albany Marathon & ½, the SB&T Bike Race and the Flint RiverQuarium Turtle Race.

With this designation the event will receive extensive exposure in over 1,600 advertisements through newspapers, magazines, web, television and radio in the US and Canada. The listing is also sent to AAA agents to promote to their consumers. The Top 20 Events are listed on the Southeast Tourism Society’s website www.southeasttourism.org and on the consumer website www.escapetothesoutheast.com. The Top 20 Events pages are consistently among the most visited pages on the STS sites.

Lisa Riddle, Albany CVB Director states that “recognition in the STS Top 20 events is big for Albany and will grant advertising, worth thousands of dollars, that otherwise could not be purchased.  This designation will hopefully bring more people to town to enjoy the festivities scheduled for March 3, 2012.”
