Maryland Tourism Works
According to Tourism Economics, tourism is the 10th largest private sector employer in the State, directly employing more than 140,288 Marylanders in 2014. In 2014 tourism generated over 2.2 billion in state and local taxes. Without taxes generated by visitor spending, Maryland households would have to pay $1,010 more a year in taxes. Overall travel expenditures in MD are $16.4 billion annually.
For over 50 years, the Maryland Tourism Coalition has represented and united varied segments of tour and travel, bringing together the entire industry to enhance business growth and to promote the development of Maryland tourism.
Maryland Tourism Coalition strives to create the most productive statewide tourism climate possible. We promote business, offer professional development activities, and enhance our economic impact for the benefit of all Marylanders.
Maryland Tourism Coalition works on behalf of its members to affect positive change and defend the industry. Through direct advocacy, Tourism Day and educational sessions, our members inform and engage elected officials. Diversity is our strength, unity is our power.
