National Travel & Tourism Week

About National Travel & Tourism Week

National Travel & Tourism Week - May 7-13, 2017, is a tradition celebrated annually since 1984. The event was established as National Tourism Week when the U.S. Congress passed a joint resolution in 1983 designating the week to be celebrated in May. In a White House ceremony, President Reagan even signed a Presidential Proclamation urging citizens to observe the week with ceremonies and activities in their communities.

Every year, the New Orleans Convention & Visitors Bureau, along with our major tourism partners, join cities across the United States to celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week and the industry that employs more than 86,000 locals and brings $7 billion to our city annually. See More Facts.
