National Travel and Tourism Week 2020 | The Spirit of Travel

Going virtual this year, follow along on our journey through National Travel and Tourism Week.

U.S. Travel Association, the national, non-profit organization representing all components of the travel industry, will host the 37th annual National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) May 3-9, 2020. Established in 1983 by a congressional resolution, NTTW is an annual tradition during the first full week of May for the U.S. travel community to celebrate the value travel hold for our economy, businesses, and personal wellbeing.

This year Visit Rogers will be embracing a digital approach to NTTW since we cannot gather together. We will use our social media channels to connect us, unify us, and support each other rallying around the Spirit of Travel.

This year’s NTTW honors the Spirit of Travel in recognition of the industry’s strength, selflessness, and resiliency. When times are uncertain, the only certainty is that the spirit of travel will not be shattered. Travel still brings joy and memorable experiences to millions, year over year. Communities still benefit from travel, which permeates through small businesses, unique landmarks, and all those who welcome residents and visitors alike with a smile and hospitality. It is hard to imagine Rogers without our local restaurants bursting with patrons, visitors and residents attending a Walmart AMP concert, adventures on Beaver Lake, sporting teams playing tournaments at our local parks, organizations hosting meetings and events at our convention center, and our local shops full on the weekends.

The spirit of travel is not only found in far-off places. When residents embrace the spirit of travel by supporting local businesses and helping their neighbors, they are also playing a key role in rebuilding their community and America. It is things like Daisy Airgun Museum and Lake Atalanta that make this city feel like home to every one of our residents.

“When the time is right, travel will resume, and Rogers will be ready for visitors and residents to patron our restaurants, attractions, hotels, event venues, parks, and amenities.”, says Marketing Communications Manager for Visit Rogers, Kelly Parker.
