Celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week: May 19-25, 2024

NTTW LogoEach year, the City of San Antonio, along with cities across the nation, celebrate the power of the travel and tourism industry. It is also a chance to learn more about how the travel and tourism industry contributes to San Antonio’s economy, business development, employment and overall quality of life.

San Antonio hosts some 37 million visitors a year, which in turn creates an annual influx of $19 billion into the local economy. It is called the San Antonio Travel Effect, and it is responsible for creating jobs, stimulating business development, funding city projects and enriching the culture and vibrancy of San Antonio.


The San Antonio Travel Effect

  • The travel and tourism industry is one of five leading industries in San Antonio.
  • In 2022, the travel industry employed more than 140,000 individuals. This was 1 out of every 7 workers in the San Antonio metropolitan area.
  • The economic impact of the Hospitality Industry in 2021 was more than double its size in 2001. Despite the challenges of the pandemic, the industry in 2021 was still bigger than it was in 2017.
  • In a remarkable rebound, the San Antonio tourism and hospitality industry shattered key performance metrics in 2022, surpassing pre-pandemic levels with an unprecedented economic impact of $19 billion - marking a 10% year-over-year increase.

During this time, the goal of National Travel & Tourism Week is to honor the spirit of travel. Please join us in celebrating travel and tourism and the positive effect it has on San Antonio, the rest of the nation and our industry’s strength, selflessness and resiliency. #NTTW24
