National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) is the annual salute to travel in America. For the last 34 years, the first full week in May has been reserved in communities nationwide to showcase the impact of travel to policymakers, business leaders and local media. It has also been a week of celebrating and honoring the "Faces of Travel" by recognizing those in our community who keep this industry thriving.
The travel industry is an indispensable source of jobs locally and statewide. These jobs provide opportunities and paths to prosperity for many individuals and families. The men and women who are the faces of our local travel industry have helped shape travel to be one of Florida's strongest industries.
This year's event will be an awards luncheon held 11:30 A.M. to 1:00 P.M. on Thursday, May 11, 2017 at Hyatt Regency Sarasota. The program's keynote speaker will be Ken Lawson, President and CEO of VISIT FLORIDA.
