Delaware County Tourism Nets $121 Million in 2019

Written By Editor on 11/22/20 | 11/22/20

Tourism-related dollars spent in Delaware County in 2019 have grown to $121 million, according to a report issued by Tourism Economics for New York State Empire State Development Division for Tourism Development on Nov. 18; and that, according to Delaware County Chamber of Commerce President Ray Pucci, is great news for local businesses and local government. 

The annual report gives tourism promotion agencies, like the Delaware County Chamber of Commerce, a snapshot of the results of our efforts and is a benchmark that the Division of Tourism uses to measure its success. A few highlights from the report reveal:

Traveler spending increased 2.5 percent across of all New York. The strongest growth occurred in the Catskills with an 7.3 percent increase in spending.
Traveler spending in Delaware County grew to $121 million in 2019.
Tourism accounted for over 1,145 jobs in Delaware County resulting in $41.7 million in labor income recirculating through the local economy.
Tourism generated more than $7.7 million in local taxes and over $6.6 million in state taxes. Were it not for tourism-generated state and local taxes, the average household in Delaware County would have to pay an additional $767 to maintain the same level of government revenue.

The bottom line is simple: our of tourism promotion program continues to work and work and your investment in tourism is paying real dividends.
