Florida’s tourism industry expects growth in 2021

Published on : Thursday, November 26, 2020

Florida’s tourism industry, which is extremely important for its economy, could experience an uptick midway through 2021, although foreign travel will continue to go slow for several years.


People, mostly from other states, are expected to travel to Florida quite close to pre-corona virus pandemic numbers in 2022.


The state’s tourism-marketing arm Visit Florida reported almost 32 percent drop in visitors during the third quarter, and a 34 percent decline so far this year.


Amy Baker, coordinator of the Legislature’s Office of Economic and Demographic Research said, “We’ve always talked about tourism and the sensitivity of our economy to tourism as being an important concern and a potential downside risk, if anything were to happen. So, with the outbreak of corona virus, we actually did see probably the worst that we will ever see happen, in terms of that downside risk materializing.”
