WRTA’s mission was to shine a spotlight on the religious travel market, make the travel industry aware of a large and powerful market that was not clearly recognized, and help provide a focal point through which the market could grow. Wright told Travel Pulse that he believes the association did succeed in establishing faith-based tourism as a key pillar of the travel industry.

Incorporated in November 2006, WRTA established itself as a recognized voice for the 300 million-traveler-a-year religious tourism and hospitality market. WRTA hosted three World Religious Travel Expos attracting organizations and professionals from more than 30 countries on six continents. The association’s members and partners included travel agents, tour operators, travel wholesalers, ground/incoming operators, cruise lines, destinations, suppliers, trade associations, religious organizations, and group planners.
