Utah marks four-year anniversary of 2002 Olympic Winter Games
Utah tourism leaders are encouraging residents to wear their attire from the 2002 Olympic Winter Games during the 2006 Games in Turin, Italy.
Since 2002, the Utah Office of Tourism reports spending has gone up in Utah as the number of out-of-state visitors has increased. Last year, Utah logged a reported 18.2 million tourism arrivals, a four-percent increase from the previous year. In 2005, traveler spending rose an estimated 9.9 percent, generating $433 million in state local tax revenues.
According to Utah Office of Tourism Managing Director Leigh von der Esch, Utah currently has a $5.45 billion tourism industry, and the figure has a lot to do with the 2002 Winter Olympics.
