New Jersey tourism is about to surpass pre-pandemic levels

 Friday, April 28, 2023 


The tourism industry of New Jersey has recuperated from the negative impacts of the pandemic and in 2023 and 2024, it’s anticipated to reach record totals, said the Secretary of State, Tahesha Way on Thursday.

In 2020, visitors in New Jersey had spent around $29.4 billion. In tourism spending, it was a $17 billion decrease, approximately 37%s from the $46.4 billion recorded in 2019, as per the report of the financial impacts commissioned by the state. The visitor numbers in the same way dropped as the state tolerated close down of orders and fears of coronavirus, dropping by 27% annually.

In 2021, tourists started to return as travel restrictions eased, however, their spending lagged behind over $9 billion of 2019.

In 2020, damaged tourism outlay the state $1.1 billion in foregone tax revenues, and about half as much in 2021, as per the economic impact reports.

Tahesha reported this tendency to the Senate Budget and Appropriations Committee. She informed them tourism in 2022, fully revived to the levels of pre-pandemic levels times, and in coming years, more growth is expected.

Way also said that this year they’re still in it, so they’ll have to wait for the next spring, however their forecasters are searching for a range of about $49 billion.

For 2024, forecasters predicted $52 billion in tourism activity, she added.

It’s not obvious whether revival has been consistent in all regions of the state, and the secretary did not say whether particular sectors of the tourism industry continued to struggle. She promised to deliver those details to lawmakers.
