PCCVB moving travel forward this National Travel & Tourism Week


PREBLE COUNTY — National Travel and Tourism Week, (NTTW) the annual celebration of the contributions of the U.S. travel industry, will spotlight the essential role that travel will play in driving economic growth and innovation through the theme #TravelForward.

“The travel industry fuels every industry—our industry’s success is the nation’s success,” said U.S. Travel Association President and CEO Geoff Freeman. “This week is a prime opportunity to elevate the message that travel is essential to moving America’s economy forward.”

Established in 1983, NTTW is an annual tradition to mark the U.S. travel industry’s role in stimulating economic growth, cultivating vibrant communities, creating quality job opportunities, stimulating business activity and elevating the quality of life for everyday Americans.

Travel serves as a catalyst for a productive U.S. economy and helps power the success of other industries. The U.S. travel industry generated a $2.6 trillion economic output in 2022 and supported 15 million jobs, fueling communities, small businesses and working families across the country.

Travel spending also generated nearly $160 billion in federal, state and local taxes in 2022—revenue that helped fund critical public services while saving each U.S. household an average of $1,270 in taxes.

In Preble County, the travel industry impacts local businesses and organizations, from mom and pop eateries and retail shops to the larger chain entities, supporting the economy in many ways.

The Preble County Convention and Visitors Bureau is recognizing travel’s essential contributions this year by sponsoring a new interactive countywide community calendar to help locals and tourists alike keep up with events and activities across the county. The Yodel Community Calendar is set to be released later this month.

The CVB has also released a new Visitors Guide for 2023, as well as a brand new website to highlight scheduled events and attract tourists to the area.

“Celebrating and supporting our local communities is at the heart of Preble County, attracting visitors and impacting the economy, creating jobs and strengthening our community’s culture and identity. This National Travel and Tourism Week, we are proud to celebrate all that travel does for our community now, and all that it will contribute in the future,” Preble County Convention Bureau Board President Stephanie Garrett said in a press release.
