Forecast for International Arrivals & Spending to the U.S.

Twice a year the Office of Travel and Tourism Industries issues an econometric-based forecast of tourism arrivals to the U.S.  The forecast covers more than 30 primary and secondary international markets and all world regions.  The forecast provides projected arrivals for a 3-year horizon.   See the View for Free option below. 

Or, you may select to have the order the forecast presentation materials for a fee.  Included for the fee are:  (1) a printout of the Power Point presentation, (2) the narrative for each of the charts/graphs issued in the outlook of international travel to the United States presentation, (3) the tables posted to the site with the forecast for the world regions and countries, as well as the table that forecast travel spending.

With this forecast, no outbound estimates are provided.  While the model is designed to provide an outbound forecast by world regions and countries, due to budget constraints, we cannot implement this option.  If you are interested in an outbound forecast, please contact OTTI at (202) 482-0140.
