National Travel and Tourism Week will be celebrated across the nation May 7-13, 2017. It's a great occasion to shine the spotlight on North Dakota's travel industry and a timely one to showcase its importance.
The travel industry is powerful and makes impactful contributions to the U.S. economy. In fact, according to USTA data, the travel industry is projected to generate more than $2.3 trillion in business this year. In North Dakota, we are the third-largest industry in the state, attracting 22 million visitors and contributing $3.1 billion to the economy.
This year’s theme shines a spotlight on the power of travel by recognizing the millions of people who keep this industry strong. Join us in celebrating North Dakota's "Faces of Travel".
