It’s hard to believe February has already arrived. January was a busy month for Ackermann PR clients, including media stories on these topics:
Smoky Mountain Tourism
A rock slide on I-40 at the Tennessee-North Carolina border is going to affect traffic for several weeks for westbound travelers entering Tennessee from the Tarheel state.
WBIR-TV asked Ackermann PR Vice President Rick Laney to talk about how the next few weeks of road detours might affect tourism businesses in Sevierville, and clients such as the Titanic Museum Attraction and Wilderness at the Smokies.
Titanic Museum Attraction
The upcoming centennial anniversary of the famous ship’s maiden voyage will be drawing attention to the Titanic Museum Attraction throughout the year. But, not all of the museum’s activities are taking place at the museum. Nashville also is playing host to some of the museum’s commemoration by hosting a production of the Tony-award winning Titanic: The Musical. The Tennessean offers some early details.
DiamondNews reported on the recent debut of the Titanic Jewelry Collection, a partnership between the Titanic Museum Attraction and Jewelry TV. Business News Daily also spotlighted this unique partnership in a round-up of Titanic commemorative activities around the country.
Titanic Museum Attraction is also an active member of the Sevier County community, working to improve the quality of life in the region. The museum recently participated in a gathering of representatives from Tennessee affiliates of Keep America Beautiful, as reported by the Mountain Press.
