The Future of Travel!
THE FUTURE OF TRAVEL
National Travel and Tourism Week 2022 (May 1-7) spotlights the dynamic, innovative future of the U.S. travel industry.
This National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW), there is more reason than ever to celebrate the collective strength and promising future of the U.S. travel and tourism industry.
Join Visit Tallahassee this National Travel and Tourism Week, May 1-7, 2022 to celebrate the FUTURE OF TRAVEL and the critical role our industry will play in rebuilding the workforce, helping communities recover, fostering sustainability, ushering in new innovations and reconnecting travelers in the U.S. and around the world.
Prior to the pandemic, in 2019, the travel industry was a powerful economic engine, supporting jobs and driving local economies in every pocket of America. Travel generated $2.6 trillion in economic output, supported 17 million American jobs and delivered a $51 billion trade surplus to the U.S.
While the industry was hit hard by the challenges of the past two years, we have emerged with great optimism and a return to economic growth as travelers get back on the road to see our great country.
We have overcome many obstacles, and the future is bright!
That’s why here in Tallahassee 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 the concerts at Cascades Park to exciting festivals and sports events, Tallahassee’s travel and tourism industry contributes so much to our local economy and the spirit of our community. From all of us at Visit Tallahassee, we are excited for all of the promising things ahead for Tallahassee and the U.S. travel industry.
Join Visit Tallahassee this National Travel and Tourism Week to celebrate the FUTURE OF TRAVEL, May 1-7, 2022. Despite the hardships of the last year, Tallahassee is ready and eager to welcome back visitors! National Travel and Tourism Week is an opportunity to remind visitors and residents of the incredible contributions of the travel industry not just to our local economy and workforce, but to our community’s identity and culture.
