Cities across the United States are gearing up for National Travel and Tourism Week (4 – 13 May 2013), and Oakland, California, is no exception. The city will stage a “Tourism Works for Oakland” clean-up day on 7 May from 9 to 11 am.
Litter will be picked up and graffiti will be removed by volunteers, who will receive T-shirts.
"In Oakland, 14,000 jobs are supported by the travel and hospitality sector, and visitors contribute to the success of our restaurants and attractions," says Alison Best, President & CEO of Visit Oakland.
"We are invested in Oakland, and are bringing the hospitality community together to sponsor this clean-up. Each year, National Travel and Tourism Week reminds us that travel is not just a leisure or business activity—it is one of America's largest and most impactful industries. One out of every eight jobs in the U.S. depends on travel and tourism."
