The Position Paper on Cultural & Heritage TourismThe Position Paper on Cultural & Heritage Tourism

October 1, 2005

The Position Paper on Cultural & Heritage Tourism in the United States was developed by PCAH with help from than more than 100 leaders representing travel, tourism, business, arts, humanities, natural resources and government and endorsed by the delegates to the U.S. Cultural & Heritage Summit. This framework for a national strategy reflects the dramatic growth in cultural and heritage tourism since the landmark 1995 Cultural Tourism in the United States white paper created by PCAH and a coalition representing the arts, historic preservation, humanities organizations and the federal cultural agencies—the National Endowment for the Arts, the National Endowment for the Humanities, the Institute of Museum and Library Services--for 1995 White House Conference on Travel and Tourism.
