National Travel and Tourism Week, May 2-10

February 25, 2015

Annual Salute to Travel and Tourism in America
National Travel and Tourism Week is May 2-10, 2015. It’s an annual tradition that was established by a congressional resolution in 1983 and first celebrated the following year. 
 
The travel community typically marks the event in a number of creative ways, from staging local rallies and conducting media outreach to securing proclamations and resolutions from local governments.
 
National Travel and Tourism Week 2015
This year's theme was chosen to reflect the wide-ranging and robust ways that the U.S. travel industry contributes to the fabric of America.
 
It is designed for destinations and organizations to customize the message to best fit their individual markets.
 
2015’s theme is: "Travel is __________."

We encourage the travel community to be creative and have fun with this year’s theme as you tailor it to reflect the unique value and impact our industry. For example:
  • Travel is adventure.
  • Travel is family memories.
  • Travel is serious business.
  • Travel is more than fun.
  • Travel is creating American jobs.
  • Travel is essential to our economy and our lives.
 
Remember, you can further promote your National Travel and Tourism week efforts on social media by following @USTravel using the hashtag #NTTW2015.
 
Thank you in advance for participating in this worthy effort. Each year it generates tremendous exposure for all the benefits that travel delivers to our economy, business, security, and Americans’ lives. We are excited to see your creativity at work once again.
