In 2018, Philadelphia brags about record tourism numbers

Published on : Friday, April 12, 2019

Philadelphia For tourism, 2018 was a record-breaking year in Philadelphia. The Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau published its annual report on Tuesday.

 

As per the data, 1.3 million people in 2018 had visited the city. The financial impact from overseas visitation reached $1.1 billion, and Center City hotel occupancy climbed to a record high of 79.6%.

 

“When our hotels are full, that means our residents have more opportunities to work,” Mayor Jim Kenney said. “Housekeepers, front desk staff, restaurant servers can all put food on their tables and contribute to our economy.”

 

The Philadelphia Convention and Visitors Bureau highlighted the banner year at the annual meeting at the Philadelphia Marriott Downtown on Tuesday.
