Sponsor the American Indian Tourism Conference

Now entering its 23rd year, the Annual American Indian Tourism Conference (AITC) is the only national conference dedicated to growing tourism in America’s indigenous communities.

Every year the conference attracts more than 300 attendees, who attend for the networking opportunities, the high-level keynote sessions and the informative breakout sessions led by some of the leading hospitality industry experts. At our first-ever virtual conference we had 800 registrants.

I cannot tell you how nice it was to be able to participate in [AITC]. It really opened new horizons for us here at the Tribe.

— Gay Saunders, Planning & Development Director, Ute Indian Tribe

The American Visitor Industry

2021 AITC Sponsor Prospectus Cover

The visitor and  hospitality industry is critical to the American economy. In total, the industry represents nearly 3 percent of the entire national Gross Domestic Product and supports some 8 million American jobs. With the distinctive cultural, heritage, culinary and agritourism offerings available throughout America’s indigenous lands, tourism provides strong economic benefits for these communities. Additionally, Native American, Alaska Native and Native Hawaiian enterprises provide numerous contributions to local, regional, state and federal tax bases, making the development of tourism in these areas a win-win situation.
