26th Annual American Indian Tourism Conference Sponsorship!

Sponsoring the American Indian Tourism Conference is an incredible opportunity to support AIANTA’s mission of promoting and preserving the rich heritage of American Indian, Alaska Native, and Native Hawaiian communities. By partnering with us, sponsors play a vital role in enabling AIANTA to lead important discussions and provide the necessary foundation for tribes and indigenous communities to develop, introduce, grow, and sustain cultural tourism. Through this sponsorship, you will not only make a tremendous impact on the tourism industry but also contribute to the economic empowerment and cultural preservation of these communities. Your unwavering dedication and enthusiasm will be recognized and celebrated as we work together to create a brighter future for Native tourism.

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.

The American Visitor Industry

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.
