Welcome to the Kentucky Travel Industry Association 

Tourism is one of our state's most important and productive sources of economic vitality, jobs and tax revenue. The Kentucky travel industry, the source of those benefits is as diverse and dynamic as the experiences it delivers to Kentucky visitors. Since 1980, KTIA has provided the industry with a unified voice, business development opportunities, education programs, and timely information. Transcending all of KTIA’s services is a continual effort to increase awareness among public officials, business leaders, media, and the general public about the vital role that tourism plays in Kentucky’s economy. If your company or organization serves Kentucky visitors, we are here to serve you.
