Celebrated annually the first full week in May, National Travel and Tourism Week(NTTW) was created by Congress in 1983 to elevate the economic power of travel in the U.S. The 38th annual NTTW (May 2-8) arrives at an opportune moment to recognize the importance to
the U.S. economy of initiating a post-pandemic travel recovery.
“NTTW takes on a special significance this year as the travel industry looks to rebound quickly from the pandemic and accelerate recovery efforts,” said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow. “The past year was incredibly challenging, but we saw the full power of the travel industry on display in the way we united and supported one another through this crisis.”
“Before the pandemic, travel generated $2.6 trillion in economic output, supported 17 million American jobs and delivered a $51 billion trade surplus to the U.S.—evidence of the outsized role the industry will play in America’s
broader economic recovery,” said Dow.
Georgetown Convention and Visitors Bureau is saluting the power of travel by showcasing a few of the many FACES OF GEORGETOWN TOURISM. Follow us on Visit Georgetown, Texas Facebook as we feature our tourism partners throughout NTTW.
