The Wyoming Office of Tourism has released its 2021 Economic Impact preliminary findings, conducted by Dean Runyan Associates. According to the report, Wyoming’s tourism and hospitality industry experienced substantial growth in 2021, with $4-billion in direct travel spending while generating $243-million in tax revenue – a 50.5 percent increase from 2020.
Governor Mark Gordon commented, “It is exciting that more people continue to come to Wyoming and experience all the things we love about our state, and it is important that we continue our efforts to grow this valuable sector of our economy.”
Specifically, the report says there were 8.1-million overnight visitors last year which is a 16.8% increase over 2020, and visitors directly spent $4-billion dollars during their time in Wyoming – a 31.2% increase from 2020. All that led to an increase of 1730 jobs in the hospitality sector.
The report was released during the Governor’s Hospitality and Tourism Conference in Cheyenne over the weekend.
