The Importance of Tour Managers in Making Our Tours Successful
On each tour sent out by ProTour Productions we send out Tour Managers to help the trip go along smoothly. The tour managers serve as the point of contact on all tours and help direct the entertainers on location. ProTour takes pride in locating and staffing enthusiastic, responsible, detail oriented tour managers for our tours.
