Make Inroads with one of the top performing markets in 2003-Participate in Spain's Fitur 2004

Spain was the 14th largest overseas travel market to the United States in 2002, recording 270,000 visitors. By the end of 2003, Spain is estimated to outperform all but one of the top fifteen overseas markets to the U.S. for the year.

According to the Office of Travel & Tourism Industries’ newest international travel forecast, the Spanish market to the U.S. will grow steadily through 2007, reaching nearly 330,000 visitors. From 2004 until 2007, arrivals from Spain are forecasted to grow 22 percent.
