Why travel? Why tourism?

 

"Making Accessible Travel and Tourism a Reality in Georgia" is a half-day executive seminar focusing on accessible travel, tourism, transportation and technology, ensuring that all destinations are available to anyone, regardless of ability. Americans with disabilities spend nearly $14 billion annually. In Georgia, tourism is the second largest industry. Each year, visitors spend an estimated $20 billion in Georgia. Accessible travel is the world's largest untapped travel and tourism market.
