2010: The Year in Review
The U.S. Department of Commerce, Office of Travel and Tourism Industries recently published its annual Year in Review report for 2010. After arguably one of the most difficult years for the tourism industry since the tragic attacks of September 11, 2001, markedly improved 2010 data suggested that economic recovery was undeway.
In summary: 4.8 million more international visitors; $14 billion rise in total travel and tourism-related exports; $68 billion increase in industry output - all suggested a strong recovery had begun. However, given the loss of 112,000 industry-related jobs last year, clearly much work remains.
