Number of hotel visitors increased 2.7% to over 9.8 million. Visitors spent a record $10.4 billion in San Diego, which was an increase of 4.8 % over 2015. There were all types of visitors, from leisure travelers to those traveling for business purposes. 2017 holds lot of promise for San Diego tourism. It’s a popular vacation destination. In 2017, San Diego will host major events, which will draw the spotlight on the city and attract more travelers.

 
There will be growth in all sectors of tourism employment – from entry level to senior staff. The San Diego Tourism Authority is closely monitoring recent executive orders from President Trump that will impact the travel and tourism industry. Organizations from state and national level have expressed their concerns over current travel conditions.

 

Restricting travel to San Diego will endanger the region’s economy, which relies on the $10 billion that visitors spend in the region annually. San Diego has long been regarded as one of the country’s friendliest and most welcoming cities, and that reputation needs to be preserved for visitors from around the world. The SDTA is committed towards this mission, encouraging visit to the region and upholding the image of the city as an international travel destination.
