WASHINGTON, DC (May 5, 2015) — This year, to celebrate National Travel and Tourism Week (NTTW) 2015, May 2-10, the travel industry is highlighting how travel affects us all with the theme: “Travel is _______________________.”
Travel is different for everyone. Travel is vacationing. Travel is making memories. Travel is essential to the U.S. economy. Travel is a job creator. No matter how you complete the sentence, the bottom line message is that travel is vital to our country and our lives, and it has meaning for everyone.
For the American Resort Development Association (ARDA), our members and our nine million-plus happy owners, Travel is “Timeshare”.
“Our owners love to travel and know that they get all the benefits of a vacation along with some extra benefits with vacationing with timeshare,” said Howard Nusbaum, president and CEO of the American Resort Development Association (ARDA). “Timeshare owners get more than a room; they get space for togetherness with room for privacy. They also have a world of options with over 5,300 resorts worldwide. And they can create memories, one vacation at a time.”
National Travel and Tourism Week is May 2-10, 2015. It’s an annual tradition that was established by a congressional resolution in 1983 and first celebrated the following year.
