Effects of Expo felt in Albany
Tens of thousands of people from all around the country are in Southwest Georgia this week for the Sunbelt Ag Expo in Moultrie.
All of the rooms at the hotels in Moultrie have been booked for months, which means people are having to stay in Albany, Valdosta, and Tallahassee as well.
Jenny Collins, with the Albany Convention and Visitor's Bureau, told FOX 31 the city of Albany will see an extra $417,000 from people staying in Albany for the Expo.
She estimated that there are at least 1,276 people staying here for the expo; she got that number from the number of bags they handed out to those they knew were headed to the expo.
