U.S. Travel Association Reports Astounding Travel Industry Statistic


Leading up to the announcement of Virtual Hill Week, the Missouri Association of Convention and Visitors Bureaus (MACVB) issued the following statement:

“While the overall economy is in the midst of a recession, the travel industry is in a depression – at 51%, travel industry unemployment is double the worst year of the Great Depression (25% in 1933).”

The MACVB will be leveraging Virtual Hill Week, taking place June 15-19, to convey the importance of prioritizing the travel industry and taking critical action to prevent further damage.  Industry professions will have the opportunity to virtually meet with members of Congress and their staff.
