In textbooks, President Obama will be praised as the first African American president of the United States of America. Now I’m wondering if he’ll be praised for signing the U.S. Travel Promotional Bill in early March.
The legislation that was just signed into a law will require oversea visitors to the U.S. to pay a $10 fee every two years. The $10 will then be matched by a private sector in the U.S. President of the U.S. Travel Association, Roger Dow said, “By signing the Travel Promotion Act, President Obama has acted to support the power of travel to serve as an economic stimulant, job generator and diplomatic tool.”
This new non profit corporation will promote tourism spots in the U.S. while educating visitors on security policies while traveling here. It will create new jobs and help to brand the U.S. as the number one travel spot. Check out the awesome chart of the most popular tourist destinations below and you’ll see that the United States holds 18 of the top spots.
So how will the U.S. Travel Promotion Act further our tourist success? My guess is that many promotional products will be put into use. Perhaps airports will offer travelers entertainment while waiting and greet visitors with fun giveaways.
The terms on the law and actions that will be taken to promote tourism here have not been disclosed, but between the next 2 to 12 months, board positions will be filled and a payment plan will be formatted for foreign travelers to pay their $10 fee.I’m excited that this means big opportunities for branding in the U.S. and I hope that the board enlists innovative minds who will create a fun, informative and fresh approach towards tourist marketing here in the United States.
