Happy National Travel and Tourism Week from Kansas Tourism!
The tradition of National Travel and Tourism Week was first celebrated in 1984, while during a a White House ceremony, President Ronald Reagan signed a Presidential Proclamation urging citizens to observe the week with "the appropriate ceremonies and activities." This annual event was designed to honor the strength and resiliency of the people in the travel industry.
The theme of #NTTW21 is “The Power of Travel” and I can’t think of better words to convey the importance of the traveling public to our Kansas economy.
This week, I hope you will take a moment to reflect on how far we’ve come in the past year in the face of a global crisis. No, it has not been easy, and yes, we still have far to go for our industry to fully recover. But I am confident that that we are moving in the right direction.
Make sure that you check out the resources that Kansas Tourism has provided for you to share with your local community leaders on the Power of Travel. This week is a great opportunity to remind those you report to on the value that tourism brings.
We at Kansas Tourism applaud each and every one of you for your strength, your resiliency, and your never-ending enthusiasm for promoting our great state. I encourage you to celebrate this week with all “the appropriate ceremonies and activities.”
To The Stars.
