Branson, Mo. – Titanic Museum Attractions’ year-long commemoration of the centennial anniversary of RMS Titanic’s maiden voyage captured the imagination of visitors from around the world and has earned awards within the tourism industry. The attractions received the 2012 Missouri Tourism Marketing Campaign Award at September’s statewide tourism conference.
The award recognized Titanic Museum Attractions’ ability to draw worldwide media coverage during the year, including visits to the Tennessee and Missouri locations by USA Today, CNN, CBS’ Sunday Morning, and Fox News’ Fox and Friends. The museum attractions were also featured this year in media coverage by major media outlets such as the New York Times, People Magazine, and the Associated Press.
“This is a great honor for both Titanic Branson and Titanic Pigeon Forge,” said John Joslyn, co-owner of the attractions and co-leader of first private expeditions to Titanic’s final resting place. “While the award is presented by the state of Missouri, it represents how the two attractions were able to coordinate their efforts to make the best possible impact in both Missouri and Tennessee.”
The Marketing Campaign Award is presented annually by the Missouri Tourism Commission and the Missouri Division of Tourism at the Missouri Governor’s Conference on Tourism. Winners are selected based on their ability to create a positive impact on tourism visitation and economic impact.
