The 39th annual National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) is taking place May 1-7. This is a time to recognize the future of travel and the critical role our industry will play in rebuilding the workforce — helping communities recover, fostering sustainability, ushering in new innovations, and reconnecting travelers in the U.S. and around the world.
This NTTW, there is more reason than ever to celebrate the collective strength and the dynamic, innovative, and promising future of the U.S. travel and tourism industry.
Prior to the pandemic, in 2019, the travel industry was a powerful economic engine, supporting jobs and driving local economies. Travel generated $2.6 trillion in economic output, supported 17 million American jobs, and delivered a $51 billion trade surplus to the U.S. The industry was hit hard by the challenges of the past two years, but we are recovering and positioning our industry for a return to growth.
While the pandemic was a setback, it’s also an opportunity to reimagine the industry to be greater than ever before. We know your destination has overcome many obstacles, and the future is bright.
