PARK CITY, Utah — The Utah Office of Tourism is granting millions of dollars to local groups, fueling the influx of tourism dollars. From Phenomicon in Vernal to the National Ability Center in Park City, 47 groups across Utah each obtained a portion of $4.7 million to promote their events after a thorough application process.
According to Vicky Verela, the Managing Director of Utah’s Office of Tourism, in a statement on KSL News Radio, fostering the visitor economy not only contributes to a thriving economy but also results in significant savings for taxpayers. On average, each household saves around $1,200 in taxes due to the boost in tourism.
Utah attracts visitors from across the globe, generating additional revenue through their expenditures on accommodations, dining, and various activities.
