June 7, 2011
Hats off to Orlando, Florida, the first destination in the United States to welcome more than 50 million visitors in a single year. The city drew 51.455 million visitors last year, up 10.5 percent from 2009. Domestic visitors accounted for 93 percent (47.78 million) of Orlando’s total visitation, a 10.3 percent increase over 2009; and international travel totaled 3.675 million, an increase of 12.6 percent from 2009. Convention and meeting visitation rose 1.4 percent. More details are here.
Orlando will be welcoming the NTA Convention in 2013, when NTA and the United Motorcoach Association hold their co-located conventions January 19–23 at the Orange County Convention Center. Vic Parra, UMA president and CEO, said Orlando is the perfect spot.
"We are looking forward to 2013 and having our Motorcoach Expo alongside NTA’s Convention," Parra said. "Orlando is one of the premier destinations in the U.S. and is the perfect venue for inaugurating what will be the premier event in our industry."
The two associations will continue their collaboration with co-located events in Los Angeles in 2014 and New Orleans in 2015. For specific dates, click here.
