Quincy Tourism achieves enviable position

Published on : Friday, April 21, 2017

Quincy TourismIllinois destinations and attractions top the chart as this time of year people across the United States and countries in the world are planning out their summer travel.

 
Quincy keeps increasing its tourism marketing budget for this year. In 2016, the local hotel tax revenue at Quincy hit a record $1 million which accounted $15,576 from the previous year. We’ve also been able to lend a hand to the Oakley-Lindsay Center with a new Quincy tourism grant to source in additional dollars in order to start fresh tourism events that create room nights. It is also being believed that all these efforts and initiations will generate huge visitor spending and uphold future jobs.

 
A reverse trend on the state level was noticed once funding for marketing efforts were temporarily prevented. For example, the first six months of Illinois leisure travel in 2015 was up by 3.1 percent. This was the time when the state of Illinois was proactively marketing itself as a travel destination. Regrettably, funding for those initiatives was cut off by the second half of the year, and by the end of 2015, leisure travel was only up by 1.3 percent.
