Florida tourism continues to break its own records. After a hugely successful year in 2014, the state smashed all previous highs in 2015. Last year, Florida received 105 million tourists and tourism indicators across the board registered their best ever. Florida airports also posted record results. And the good news is that, as this latest BRIC Group article explains, more of the same is expected in 2016.
The latest report on competitiveness in tourism reveals that the US ranks fourth in the world and that Brazil tops the listing in South America. In addition, Brazil has risen 23 places in the table and tipped as one of the strongest emerging markets for international tourism expenditure.
Figures for tourism in Florida continue to smash records all round. Visitors for the first quarter this year were the highest for a three-month period ever; Orlando set a historic high for metro areas in America; and revised statistics for last year, show that those on holiday in Florida were nearer the 100 million mark than originally calculated.
