Florida sets record with 88 million tourist during the first nine months

Published on : Wednesday, November 22, 2017

floridaGov. Rick Scott announced this week that a record number of tourists came to Florida despite Hurricane Irma in the first nine months of the year.


It saw a 3 percent increase from the same time period last year despite Hurricane Irma disrupted the theme parks and other attraction in September and around 88.2 million visited the state.


Ken Lawson, the president and CEO of Visit Florida said that the first nine months saw back-to-back record quarters reflecting the momentum of Florida tourism industry.


Visit Florida is a state funded agency that promotes tourism.


The state had earlier announced in August that it reached an estimated all-time high for tourists during the first six months of 2017.


The projections from enplanement numbers at 17 airports in the state were calculated and more information was generated from Virginia-based research company D.K Shifflet.


Scott further said that Florida had three record quarters in 2017 that was possible with the relentless work to bring Florida as the top tourism destination.


Visit Florida’s aggressive marketing efforts ensured that families across the world were aware that Florida was open for tourism post Hurricane Irma.
