Thank you for your interest in tourism in the state of Tennessee.

Since 2011, the Tennessee Tourism Committee (TTC) has worked diligently to champion tourism activity and development across the beautiful state of Tennessee.

The Committee’s mission is to make Tennessee one of the top 10 states in the U.S. for business and leisure travel.

Tourism is the number two industry across the state, supporting jobs, economic growth and improving the quality of life for over 6.5 million Tennesseans.

The purpose of this website is to be a useful tool to share and promote the strategies and plans for tourism growth.

We encourage all tourism stakeholders to engage with this website often and to register on the contact page to receive information and periodic updates.

Much good work has already been done, resulting in strong growth in tourism from 2011 through 2019. Tennessee hit a record-high $23 billion in domestic and international travel spending in 2019, marking a decade of consecutive growth.

While the COVID-19 pandemic recently disrupted that trend, our strong and rapid recovery plans and actions are propelling our recovery.

There has never been a more important time to take aggressive action to promote safe and rewarding travel across and to Tennessee.

On behalf of the entire TTC Committee, I am grateful for your ongoing support and dedication to Tourism in Tennessee.

All the best,


Craig Ross
Tennessee Tourism Committee Chairman
