from San Diego Union Tribune (5/07/2015):
More tourists coming to CA, San Diego
“California is seeing growth in international travel and conventions, and all of the top markets are advertising aggressively, which drives domestic leisure business,” said Robert Rauch, a San Diego hotelier and a former board member of San Diego’s Tourism Marketing District. “Moreover, San Francisco has been growing at a torrid pace due to both Silicon Valley’s economic strength and very strong visitation from both group and leisure markets.
“Anaheim has benefited from Disney’s anniversary year, Los Angeles has reinvented its downtown with L.A. Live, and San Diego is hitting on all cylinders with tourism funding, a strong convention market and improved international travel.”
