January/February 2015

Each year, Visit Vancouver USA releases its Annual Tourism Report to our stakeholders and community partners. This report showcases the work of our dedicated team, but more importantly, it highlights the economic impact of the tourism industry on the development and growth of Clark County.

Tourism continues to be an economic driver for our community, and this past year was no exception. 2014 brought growth and expansion to Clark County, with a new hotel opening on the Eastside and two more slated to open in 2015. This growth is highlighted in our Annual Report through travel-spending graphs, a recap of total tourism dollars spent, and tables charting the impact of convention and meeting sales.

In addition to spending stats and industry recaps, the Annual Report highlights our marketing campaigns, public relations, and social media efforts. Our team works daily to create a positive perception of our destination through innovative promotional pieces and influencing media coverage.

We have mailed copies of the report to all of our community partners, but if you have not received your copy, please access the digital version. After reading the report, we hope you'll see for yourself the value tourism has to our economy.
