This year National Travel and Tourism Week is May 2-8, 2021.  NTTW will recognize the POWER OF TRAVEL and the industry’s role in bringing back our vibrant communities, restoring the U.S. economy, rebuilding our workforce and reconnecting America.

Maryland Tourism Coalition (MTC), in partnership with the Maryland Office of Tourism is bringing you a week of events to celebrate the Tourism Industry in Maryland!  Visit the MTC Facebook Page each day during the week to win some great prizes from our friends around the state. So make sure you “LIKE” our page and visit daily throughout the week for your chance to win! Get ready to tell us your stories!

To celebrate the power of travel in Maryland, many of MTC’s hotel partners have donated 1 or 2 night stays. We will be giving these mini-vacations away each day to a lucky person who participates in MTC’s social media campaign to get your stories of how travel in Maryland has been powerful for you. Each day there is a separate theme. Each day we want a tourism photo taken in Maryland and one or two sentences on what this picture means to you and how it relates to our theme of the day. Restrictions will be listed on the prize certificates which will be sent to each winner.

(Any photos posted to MTC social media during NTTW for #PowerofTravel Stories will be property of MTC and we will be free to use on future campaigns. We will give you photo credit of course)
