According to the United States Travel Association, direct spending by domestic and foreign travellers in the United States generates $1.9 trillion in economic activity each year. It supports over 14.4 million jobs, and $194.5 billion in payroll income annually. In addition, tourism generates $124 billion per year in direct tax revenues.
The beneficiaries of tourism are not only hotels, restaurants, governments and taxpayers (whose taxes are supplemented by tax revenues generated by tourists) but also the many businesses and services that directly or indirectly support the hospitality industry, from transportation, to hotel laundry services, to electrical utilities.
So it’s in the best interests of everyone to make your city as much of a tourist magnet as it can be. To that end ARTLUMIERE can provide a powerful new evening attraction that will make nighttime tourism grow and the city’s nightlife flourish – for example with the implementation of a narrative cultural light and sound show performed after dark for spectacle-hungry visitors.
