Obama Signs the Travel Promotion Act Into Law 



 Travel Promotion Act Signing By Obama, 3-4-10 

President Obama signs TPA into law, March 4, 2010. 

The Travel Promotion Act (TPA) was signed into law on March 4, 2010.  This now opens up the next phase of this multi-year economic plan:  its implementation. 


AH&LA is working with the U.S. Travel Association in creating a plan for the Act's implementation. The next steps will be for the Corporation for Travel Promotion to appoint its Board members, hire staff, and secure the funding aspects described in the law.  It is estimated that the first ad campaign will begin in mid-2011.

Over the next year, AH&LA will announce the various programs emerging from this tremendous legislative accomplishment that will help the economic situation of the industry.
