Florida’s Tourism Industry continues to outpace the competition and other industries with an annualized growth rate of over 4%!
As a result, the number of direct travel-rated jobs in the state also hit a record high of 1,135,700, an increase of 3.6 percent, Visit Florida reported.
“Anyone would be happy to see their business grow by 4 percent year-over-year,” said Andrew Hertz, chairman of the Visit Florida’s board of directors, referring to the increase in total visitors. “But it is absolutely amazing when an entire industry keeps beating record numbers, while adding jobs and supporting the rest of the state’s economy.”
With tourism, comes jobs, & a healthier and more stable housing market.
