U.S. Travel Association's Education SeminarFederal security experts, civilian contractors and tourism industry leaders assembled today in NYC for discussing increased cooperation in a time which is plagued by gun violence, terrorism and xenophobia.

The organizers of this meet said that it was the first summit of its kind between the security and tourism industries and in today’s scenario, both are connected with each other.

To quote Jonathan Grella, executive vice president for the U.S. Travel Association, which is in charge of hosting the summit, “Unfortunately security has occupied an increasing share of our conversations as an industry.”

The tourism industry of the U.S. generated $1.6 trillion in economic output in 2015, supporting 7.6 million jobs. The speakers at the summit included personnel and advisers from the federal, civilian and private sector. Tourism representatives include managers of hotels, airlines, convention centers, among others.
