Celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week: May 3 – 9, 2020

Each year, the City of San Antonio, along with cities across the nation, celebrates 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 $15.2 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.
  • Travel supports more than 140,188 jobs in San Antonio – meaning that one in every seven jobs in San Antonio depends on travel and tourism.
  • Travel contributes more than $213.7 million in taxes and fees to the City of San Antonio and more than $419 million to all local governments combined, which helps to fund river improvements, amateur sports facilities, community arenas, cultural arts and historic preservation.

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.
