Hospitality and Tourism

Buffalo Niagara’s hospitality and tourism industry drives billions of dollars in travel spending and development in our region, generating needed tax revenue for local governments in the process. The industry is also a top-five employer in both Erie and Niagara County. As the COVID-19 Pandemic made a lasting impact on travel and consumer patterns, hospitality and tourism-related companies and organizations are adapting to a new marketplace.
