Surveillance Cameras For Tourism and Events
Tourism is big business. Over the decades, tourism has experienced continued growth to become one of the fastest growing economic sectors in the world. A multibillion dollar industry in the United States, it generated nearly $1.6 trillion in economic output in 2015 and employs 1 out of every 18 Americans, according to SelectUSA. The program, part of the International Trade Administration at the U.S. Department of Commerce, projects the industry to grow 3 percent annually through 2021. Therefore, it is no wonder tourism commissions want to take advantage of that trend and invite travelers to come and see what their localities have to offer.
Likewise, the events industry is huge. According to a 2012 study by the Events Industry Council, there were 1.83 million corporate and business meetings, trade shows, conventions, congresses, incentive events and other meetings in the U.S. The $280 billion in direct spending contributed $115 billion to the nation’s GDP and $28 billion in federal, state and local tax revenue.
