National Travel and Tourism Week

National Travel and Tourism Week—which will take place this year May 6-12—is an annual tradition for the U.S. travel community. This year’s celebration marks the 35th anniversary of the 1983 congressional resolution that established NTTW—and it’s all about celebrating the contributions and accomplishments of the U.S. travel community over the course of the last several decades.  It’s a time when travel and tourism professionals across the country unite to celebrate the unique value travel holds for our economy, businesses and personal well-being.

We’re shining the spotlight on the people behind our nation’s travel industry with this year’s theme: “Travel: Then and Now.” Our industry is one that relies on human interaction—whether it’s the front desk concierge at a hotel, the tour guide in a city’s historic district, or the CEO of a local destination marketing organization, our people are what make America a great place to visit, and keep our industry strong. Read about how travel affects us here in Denton, as well as everyone in the US, at Kim Phillips’ May 6, 2018 blog.
