Skift Take

National Travel and Tourism Week is an annual tradition for the U.S. travel community that bring together travel and tourism professionals to celebrate the value travel holds for our economy, businesses and personal well-being.

As you may know, National Travel & Tourism Week is an annual tradition for the U.S. travel community. It’s a time when travel and tourism professionals across the country unite to celebrate the value travel holds for our economy, businesses and personal well-being.

Just a few important stats:

  • As a leader in workforce development and career advancement, travel creates and supports 15.7 million jobs across the U.S., making it the seventh-largest private sector employer.
  • In 2018, traveler spending generated $171 billion in total tax revenue, including $78.6 billion in state and local revenue.
  • That $78.6 billion can pay for a host of critical resources; it’s more than enough to pay all state and local police and firefighters, or the more than one million public high school teachers.
