ABOUT NATIONAL TRAVEL AND TOURISM WEEK
Established in 1983 by a congressional resolution, National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) is an annual
tradition during the first full week of May for the U.S. travel community to celebrate the value travel holds for
our economy, businesses and personal wellbeing.
U.S. Travel Association, the national, nonprofit organization representing all components of the travel
industry, provides the industry with a unifying theme and toolkit resources that can be customized by each
destination, organization, or business to fit their needs.
Tuesday is traditionally recognized as “Travel Rally Day” and many use it as an opportunity to organize inperson celebrations with their community. This year, we’re embracing a ‘digital NTTW’ because even though
we all may not be able to gather together, we can use our social media channels and unifying hashtags
(#nttw21 and #PowerOfTravel) to connect us and support each other from afar.
