CEDAR CITY — More than 70 members of the western chapter of the Society of American Travel Writers are in Cedar City meeting for professional development sessions and to familiarize themselves with tours of the area.
Professional development sessions scheduled for the travel writers range from social media to photography to managing technology.
Various familiarization tours have been arranged for the SATW writers by the Cedar City-Brian Head Tourism & Convention Bureau, host of the regional meeting. The writers will visit the Tony Award-winning Utah Shakespeare Festival, Brian Head, Cedar Breaks National Monument and other local attractions.
“We are expecting big returns on our investment to host the regional meeting of SATW,” said Maria Twitchell, executive director of the Cedar City-Brian Head Tourism & Convention Bureau. “The prospects of publicity and stories coming out of the conference will give us exposure with national media outlets that we normally couldn’t access.”
The writers will be in Cedar City until June 29.
