Florida Chamber Bottom Line: VISIT FLORIDA’s Dana Young Shares Tourism Update
By: Florida Chamber of Commerce
Florida Tourism Equals Dollars
In the latest edition of the Florida Chamber Bottom Line, we sat down with Dana Young, the newly appointed President & CEO of VISIT FLORIDA, to discuss Florida’s growing tourism and the positive economic effects of welcoming record-breaking numbers of visitors to the Sunshine State.
“What tourism means to Florida is dollars,” said Young. “For every dollar the state gives to VISIT FLORIDA we generate two dollars back to the state… that means we live in a state with no corporate income tax, that means that our cost of living is lower.”
Florida Breaks Tourism Record for Eighth Year
During the Florida Chamber’s 2019 Legislative Fly-In, Dana Young announced that Florida had once again broken a tourism record, with more than 126 million visitors coming to Florida in 2018.
