CONCORD, NC (May 7, 2018) – This week, the Cabarrus County Convention and Visitors Bureau invites you to join them and communities across the nation to celebrate National Travel & Tourism Week (May 6-12, 2018).

This annual tradition is a time to unite and celebrate the value travel holds for our economy, businesses and personal well-being. The theme for this year’s 35th annual celebration is “Travel Then and Now” and recognizes the contributions and accomplishments of the U.S. travel community over the course of the last several decades.

“Cabarrus County is fortunate to have a community that welcomes growth, hospitality partners who warmly welcome visitors, and visitors who welcome new adventures,” said Cabarrus County CVB President and CEO Donna Carpenter. “Combined, these things fuel our area’s tourism industry and quality of life. Without the state and local taxes generated by visitors in Cabarrus County, each household would pay $484 more in taxes each year.”

The latest tourism impact statistics come from “The Economic Impact of Travel on North Carolina Counties 2016”—a study prepared for Visit North Carolina by the U.S. Travel Association. Highlights of the study specific to Cabarrus County include:

  • Cabarrus County ranks 12th in travel impact among NC’s 100 counties
  • Domestic visitors to and within Cabarrus County spent over $433 million in 2016
  • Tourism generates more than 4,500 jobs and $98 million in payroll in Cabarrus County
  • Tourism generated over $32.5 million in combined state & local tax revenues in 2016

Throughout the week, the Cabarrus County CVB will share posts on social media that celebrate the destination’s growth and share the positive impact that tourism has on the community. Join in on the social celebration by tagging Visit Cabarrus, liking, commenting, retweeting, and sharing.
