DULLUTH - This June, Forward Conference celebrates its tenth year anniversary and thousands of students are expected to travel to northeast Georgia for the event.

Over 13,000 students and youth leaders from across the nation will gather in Duluth’s Gwinnett Arena on June 26-28. The 2014 event continues the tradition of hosting influential speakers and music artists.

This event also brings significant economic impact to both Gwinnett and Hall counties, according to tourism officials.

“Each year over 30 hotels throughout Gwinnett County are used to temporarily house Forward’s out of town attendees, providing a huge amount of financial impact over the course of these four days to our County,” says Ross Powell of the Gwinnett County Convention and Visitor’s Bureau. “With their thousands of attendees, this also means increased revenue for local businesses including restaurants, gas stations, stores, and area attractions such as Sugarloaf Mills, the Mall of Georgia, Stone Mountain Park, Lake Lanier Islands Park, and much more.”

There are still a limited amount of registrations available for this year’s Forward Conference. To register, or for more information, visit www.forwardconference.org
