Sioux Falls might get impacted by the travel ban

Published on : Saturday, March 25, 2017

Sioux FallsTeri Schmidt, the head of the Sioux Falls Convention and Visitor’s Bureau, visits Washington to attend an annual conference with United States Travel Association on Monday. The prime of topic of discussion would be President Trump’s travel ban.

 
Last year, visitors from sixty foreign countries had booked for Falls Park and this could severely hamper if the travel ban passes through as expressed by Schmidt. To quote her, ‘’ we have to wait and see what actually becomes reality of the travel ban and then we have to figure how in the world we’re going to deal with that.’’

 
She also says that if tourism number drops with travel ban, number of employed people will also get down creating fewer tax dollars. Therefore, with decreased demand, lesser number of executives will be needed. She addresses the ban as a national concern as many large and smaller communities are looking at it carefully. If travel ban is kept aside, Sioux Falls can really expect a good number of tourists this year.

 

She adds by saying that there are various political scenarios influencing the attitudes and expenses of the common people and tourism industry should be aware of those.
