Since 1983, National Travel and Tourism Week was created by Congress to underscore the economic power of travel in the U.S. This year’s theme: The Spirit of Travel spotlights the spirit and resiliency of the U.S. travel industry in the face of the coronavirus pandemic.
According to Visit El Paso, we saw strong numbers in visitation and direct spending which contributed to over 14,500 jobs for El Pasoans last year. El Paso’s occupancy of 76.2% also leads the state and national averages of 65% and 66.1% respectively.
During National Travel and Tourism Week we are reminded that although the coronavirus is proving challenging times for many - it is more important now than ever to be reminded of the incredible heart and life-force of our travel industry and workforce in El Paso and surrounding areas.
