Is the New York summer tourism season making a comeback?


The summer tourism season is in full swing across New York and relief for businesses who rely on travel dollars is sorely needed. 

The industry took a deep hit in the first year of the COVID-19 pandemic, shedding jobs and profit along the way. But the industry continues to face challenges. 

Hiring staff remains a key concern for employers in the tourism sector of the economy. But despite inflation and gas prices far higher than they were a year ago, New York State Tourism Industry Association President Bob Provost is hopeful a recovery is underway — especially in parts of upstate New York.

Provost spoke with Capital Tonight on Thursday about the industry’s outlook this summer so far.
