National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW), the annual celebration of the contributions and accomplishments of the U.S. travel industry, will spotlight resilience and hope in the face of the coronavirus pandemic with this year’s theme: the Spirit of Travel.
Celebrated annually the first full week in May, NTTW was created by Congress in 1983 to underscore the economic power of travel in the U.S. The 37th NTTW (May 3-9) arrives at an opportune moment to unite the industry, celebrate its indomitable spirit and elevate the role it will play in America’s economic recovery.
“Through every hardship, I find myself in awe of the travel industry’s ability to join together, adapt, and emerge stronger than before,” U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Roger Dow said. “This is our toughest challenge yet, but what I’ve seen is that the spirit of travel has not been shattered.”
Since in-person rallies and events that have been hallmarks of NTTW in years past are not an option this year, Fox World Travel is engaging the community with fun blogs and activities, encouraging travelers to share their favorite memories, as well as celebrating the brave men and women in the medical industry helping those in need.
“Travel professional week allows us to reflect on all that we hold dear to our hearts,” Fox Vice President of Vacation Travel, Julie Durham said. “Every fox family member takes great pride in making sure that the traveling public can get from A to B and everywhere in between with style while keeping safely top of mind. Two things are very important to remember: One day we will travel again and that the travel advisor will be needed more than ever.”
