Celebration Named "Best Bet" By Travel Website



 

 

SHELBYVILLE, Tenn. – The Tennessee Walking Horse National Celebration® has been cited by a leading travel website as a "2008 Best Bet" for times to visit the Nashville/Middle Tennessee area.

The Celebration® was selected by the experienced editors of 10Best and independent journalists. Their expert sources and exhaustive research allow 10Best to provide the ultimate in online travel recommendations and localized data – worldwide.

10 Best (www.10best.com) was established in 1999 and provides unbiased travel advice to over 40-million travelers each year through its website and its partners in the travel industry – leading hotel brands, Priceline.com, and Verizon Wireless. However, 10Best is independently financed, so they are free to be completely honest and impartial – no one can pay to be included.

"We’re extremely proud to be selected by 10Best for this recognition," said Celebration CEO Ron Thomas. "To be honored by this international travel website means a great deal to us and to our industry."

In a letter to The Celebration®, 10Best President and CEO Brice Bay said, "Congratulations on a job well done! 10Best has taken notice of your all-around quality, from your devotion to customers to your community involvement to your business acumen. The 10Best Award acknowledges your hard work and indicates that you’ve done things right. 10Best applauds you. Let others follow suit."
