MEMPHIS, Tenn. – Delegates can hear the music, explore the history and see the city at the 2012 BankTravel Conference in Memphis, Tenn., February 7-9. The Memphis Convention and Visitors Bureau recently announced the four complimentary sightseeing tours created for the conference.

Guests can choose which tour sounds most appealing to them. All tours have 40 seats available, and will run from 10 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Afterwards, attendees can enjoy the “Bank on Memphis” Party at 7:30 p.m. The mystery party will feature prizes and giveaways.

“Lisa Catron and her associates have put together four distinctive itineraries for BankTravel attendees coming in early, and one of the four should fit the bill for anyone interested,” said Teresa Burton, conference vice president. “I’m already getting lots of calls from bankers who want to know about these, so here’s the lowdown!”
