Travel industry associations want to get Americans moving again, saying that if leisure travel picks up, then business travel is likely to follow.

The “Let’s Go There” campaign was launched in early September by the U.S. Travel Association to encourage Americans to start planning their next trip, with the group pointing to research showing that planning for vacations and other leisure travel improves people’s moods. Multiple businesses and associations have joined the effort, including ASAE, the American Resort Development Association and the U.S. Chamber of Commerce.
