According to a recent report the organization published, in 2016, more than 26 million people visited the Cincinnati region, spending $5 billion collectively, driven by spending on food and beverage, retail and lodging. Tourism generates $1.1 billion in tax revenue, including state and local taxes, and more than 77,000 jobs are sustained through the industry.
