Alameda County continued to thrive from visitor spending in 2018. Visit California’s latest economic impact report demonstrates visitor spending reached $4.3 billion and supported 30,700 jobs in Alameda County, a 4 percent boost from last year, equivalent to a $153 million increase. This growth highlights the ongoing importance of tourism to the region and California’s economy.

“Visit Tri-Valley has experienced double-digit growth in hotel room revenue from 2012 – 2017, impacting our economy by creating 6000 jobs and contributing $69.6 million in taxes from 1.64 million visitors in 2017. We look forward to getting the 2018 numbers in June, and expect to see continued growth in all areas,” states Barbara Steinfeld, President and CEO of Visit Tri-Valley.
