How to Celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week
May 2-9, 2021
The tourism and hospitality industry is an economic powerhouse, so when crises occur, the effects can be devastating. Last year, the US economy lost nearly $1.1 trillion in economic output, strictly because of the plunge in tourism. It is critical to remind our partners, tribal leadership, elected representatives, local and national media, and anyone other stakeholders just how important tourism is to a healthy economy. Learn more about how you can spread the word during National Travel and Tourism Week (May 2-9, 2021). Learn More
