2021 Summer Surge in Travel and Events


Expect a 2021 summer surge in travel and events as restrictions are lifted. People are eager to get out and socialize again which is increasing demand across a wide range of industries such as Gift, Novelty, and Hobby Crafts.

According to data from the Transportation Security Administration, more than two million people have passed through U.S. airports each day since the start of the year.
