Welcome to the Kentucky Travel Industry Association 

The Kentucky travel industry, a premier driver of Kentucky’s economy, is as diverse and dynamic as the experiences it delivers to Kentucky visitors.

Since 1980, KTIA has provided the industry with advocacy, education, information and business development services. Transcending all of KTIA’s work is a concerted effort to increase awareness of the vital role that tourism plays in Kentucky’s economy. 

If your company or organization serves Kentucky visitors, we are here to serve you. To find out more about becoming a KTIA member, click here
