U.S. Travel Association presents National Travel and Tourism Week, May 19-25, 2024.

National Travel and Tourism Week celebrates the industry’s critical role in powering our nation’s economy, communities and connections. Together, let’s demonstrate our industry’s critical importance—in every corner of our country.

Travel is a $2.8 trillion industry that supports nearly 15 million American jobs while fueling other important industries like manufacturing, health care and agriculture—all which depend on travel to generate business, spur innovation and support education.

The travel industry is essential to America’s success—it is an economic powerhouse that unites people, benefits society and is paramount to the United States’ global competitiveness.

It’s important to continue to grow this vital sector of the U.S. economy. We must elevate the perceived value of the industry among policymakers, opinion leaders and business leaders.

That’s why here in Saratoga Springs, NY, and across America, we are using NTTW to recognize the contributions of the U.S. travel industry and how we will grow a more dynamic, innovative, sustainable, and inclusive future. While the pandemic was a setback, it’s also an opportunity to reimagine the industry to be greater than ever before.

From Saratoga Race Course to Saratoga Performing Arts Center, Saratoga’s travel and tourism industry contributes so much to our local economy and the spirit of our community. From all of us at Discover Saratoga, we are excited about all of the promising things ahead for Saratoga and the U.S. travel industry.
