9 GROUP TRAVEL LE ADER T H E SALEM, Ohio — Traveling groups across the country will enjoy a large selection of tour destina- tions as Diamond Tours continues its commitment to a leadership role in the travel industry. Diamond Tours is committing to reach out to new travel groups in seven target markets where its executives see tour growth potential. The announcement came as Diamond Tours inked a sponsorship agreement with The Group Travel Family and plans to participate in all group travel markets in 2017. The nationally recognized tour company will bring its message to these groups through The Group Travel Family, an organization of group travel associations that, collectively, has 25,000 travel groups in its membership. Your group can still book a tour with no deposit, and Diamond still prints the group's trip f liers free of charge. The company has retained that policy from its beginning to help group leaders.
