According to the U.S. Department of Commerce, in 2014 international visitors spent $220.8 billion experiencing the United States. These travel and tourism exports accounted for 31 percent of all U.S. services exports and 9 percent of all U.S. exports, goods and services alike.

Each March, AIANTA sponsors an expansive American Indian Pavilion at ITB Berlin, the world’s leading travel and trade show. This provides Tribal tourism departments the opportunity to showcase their programs and tour packages to the European tourism industry. AIANTA booth participants have made invaluable contacts with international travel organizations, media and tour operators. They were featured in the ITB Indigenous Day Program, attracting large crowds of participants and hundreds of international travel media representatives.

More than 175,000 trade professionals and consumers participated in ITB 2015. Europeans are traveling to the U.S. at an increasing rate because of the attractive currency exchange rate. Now is the time to capture your tribe’s or business’ share of this vast market by joining AIANTA at ITB 2018!
