National tour magazine features traveling exhibit

Group Tour Media featured Making Alabama. A Bicentennial Traveling Exhibit in a story, telling all about the exhibit, the 67-county tour and features of the statewide exhibit to commemorate 200 years of Alabama statehood.

Group Tour Media, the publisher of Group Tour magazine, Student Group Tour magazine, Group Tour Spotlight e-magazine, and On Tour newsletter is “a travel communications company dedicated to conveying information between suppliers and group travel planners,” according to its mission statement. 

Making Alabama is presented by Alabama Humanities Foundation in partnership with Alabama Bicentennial Commission, Alabama Department of Archives and History and Alabama Department of Tourism.

“We are honored to get noticed nationally with this exhibit,” said AHF Executive Director Armand DeKeyser. “This is a significant event for our state and for the Bicentennial celebration. We look forward to the opening in Montgomery in March and the 18-month tour that will follow in communities all across our state.”

DeKeyser called it a rare opportunity to showcase the state’s history and culture, sharing the events that shaped the Alabama of today and beyond.
