Travel & Tourism Life Cycle
- May 3, 2013
-- As one of the fastest-growing industries, travel and tourism is responsible for one out of every 8 jobs in the United States. Generating $2.1 trillion dollars in economic output, the industry supports 14.6 million U.S. jobs and averages $2.3 billion each day in direct spending by domestic and international travelers.
Growing businesses, reinvigorating the economy and strengthening family bonds are just a few of the benefits tourism offers. Travel marketing fosters increased visitor spending, job growth and tax revenues. Established in 1984, National Travel & Tourism Week takes place May 4 – 12. It's the perfect time to raise awareness for the significant role tourism has on businesses and our economy.
