Austin's Faces of Travel

During National Travel & Tourism Week (May 7-13), Visit Austin will be celebrating the hospitality industry through “The Faces of Travel." Faces of Travel shines a spotlight on the people who make up the American travel industry. Travel and tourism employ a prosperous and diverse workforce, from airline and hotel employees to restaurant, attraction and retail workers, and supports related sectors such as construction, manufacturing and finance. In Austin alone, more than 120,000 residents are employed in the hospitality industry, which is now the third largest employer in our region, according to the Greater Austin Chamber of Commerce.

This year, 25 nominees were chosen by the community to represent Austin as the Faces of Travel. These individuals have not only been successful in their careers, but have also made an impact on the community and visitors.
