“The mission of the BTC Groups Department is to help the Group Leader give their group the greatest Branson experience possible by providing the Group Leader with as much assistance as they want or need; all they have do is come to Branson with their Group, and everything will be ready for a great event,” said Annette Wood, the Director of Sales and Marketing for the Branson Tourism Center. “In providing that assistance, one of the questions our Group Sales Managers are asked most often is, ‘What Branson shows should we plan to see?'” she added.
Wood points out that the answer to that question depends on what a particular group is looking for in terms of an entertainment experience. That will obviously be different from group to group and, in most cases, from person to person within a given group; the challenge is to find a show or shows that will appeal to most members of the group. The good news is that is easy to do in Branson because of the quality, value, and variety of the great live shows it offers. The following is a list of the top shows that many of our groups are currently enjoying in Branson:
Billy Dean in Concert with Jarrett, a country music star and a country comedy king; it’s almost more Branson excitement than you can handle! Dean’s hits include Only Here for a Little While, Somewhere in My Broken Heart, and Billy the Kid. Jarrett has kept audiences laughing for years, and now he brings a new cast of characters to the stage.
