Travel Matters in Merriam!

Tourism Week 2019

In celebration of National Tourism Week, Merriam’s Mayor Ken Sissom greeted guests and helped serve on the front lines at Merriam’s Hampton Inn & Suites on Wednesday, May 8. Now in its 36th year, National Tourism Week is the annual salute to travel in America. During this first full week in May, communities nationwide unite around a common theme to showcase travel’s contributions to the economy and American jobs. This year, the travel industry is coming together to celebrate why “Travel Matters,” spotlighting a different way travel matters each day to American jobs, economic growth, and personal well-being.

“It’s important to come and show our support of those who welcome and serve our visitors daily,” Mayor Sissom said. “We greatly value the hospitality and tireless efforts of these workers, and today is an opportunity for us to say thank you to our tourism industry employees, who serve as Merriam’s most supportive ambassadors.”

Mayor Sissom said visitors can freely choose where to spend their travel dollars and appreciates them selecting Merriam as their top choice. To learn more about tourism in Merriam, visit exploremerriam.com.
