National Travel and Tourism Week

National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) is an annual event that takes place throughout the country celebrating the importance and economic impact of travel. Every year the NOCVB, along with our major tourism partners, join cities across the United States to celebrate NTTW and the industry that employs more than 80,000 locals, and last year brought 9.52 million visitors and $6.8 billion in spending to our city. Everyone can participate in the celebration with various events throughout the week. Mark your calendars for the following and CLICK HERE for more information:
