Tourism is becoming a big business with cities all around the world constantly on the look out for marketing opportunities to drive much needed visitors which in turn increases revenue for the city. President Barack Obama’s announcement of new strategies aimed to significantly increase travel and tourism are proving to work as last year the US welcomed 62 million international visitors, 2.5 million more than in 2010. Obama’s camp stated, “International visitors spent an all-time record of $153 billion on U.S. travel- and tourism-related goods and services. The large volume of international visitors makes travel and tourism our number-one service export”.
As well as the USA being a highly sought-after holiday destination for foreign visitors, the increase of visitors has also created 103,000 more jobs in the tourism-related industry. From tourists, investors, global brands to families looking for an alternative to the usual family vacation, Chicago Monthly will provide international readers an opportunity to find out where the best restaurants, hotels, retail outlets, events and generally who and where to go for the best service the city has to offer.
