National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) is an annual tradition for the U.S. travel community. It’s a time when travel and tourism professionals across the country unite to celebrate the value travel holds for our economy, businesses and personal well-being. This year’s celebration, which will take place May 6 – 12, 2018, 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.
The theme of NTTW 2018, “Travel Then and Now,” gives our industry a chance to reflect on past successes, while advocating for policies that promote future growth. Every U.S. destination has a story to tell about its unique offerings that have attracted visitors to their area for years. NTTW 2018 is a great opportunity to shine a spotlight on what travel has done for your community—and what we need our government leaders to do to ensure travel continues to benefit for generations to come.
