Friends of Travel - Give Back

ONLINE REGISTRATION IS NOW CLOSED.  FOR MORE INFORMATION, CALL OUR OFFICE AT 512-328-8842.


The TTIA/Texas Tourism Foundation has established the Friends of Travel program to give each of us an opportunity to give back to those tourism partners that may need our assistance.  

As you know, last summer's wildfires had a devastating impact on Texas. The TTIA Texas Travel Summit is taking place at the Hyatt Regency Lost Pines Resort this year, and we would like to take this opportunity to give back and help the Bastrop State Park in its recovery by providing them with some volunteer help the Saturday before Travel Summit. The event is currently scheduled from 8:45am - 2:30pm.
