Canada Travel: Strong 13% rebound YTD (Aug) to USA following 5% decline in 2009. Non-U.S.2010 YTD also up, but only +3%. New record THIS YEAR is assured strongly likely highly possible!

Canada Rankings: #1 visitors, #1 spending, #1 travel trade balance.

Profile: travel attributes mostly stable. Watch DEcreases in travel party spending, but increases in casino, souvenir/shopping spending, average stay length.

Forecast: Favorable outlook>>economy, currency exchange rate, TPA!!

WHTI: Phase III June 2009 full implementation now a year behind us.

Travel Promotion Act : Potential for significant level of marketing effort in a year or two and subsequent increase in visitor volume/spending. MVB is head cheerleader for promoting the USA to the Canada market.


Summary of why canada
Summary of Why Canada!

Top dog: #1 in visitors and visitor spending and travel trade balance.

Geo-equity: Best of any visitor origin country.

Canada marketing (was) on rise: DiscoverAmerica.com, state-level efforts.

Shoulder season: helps fulfill many destinations’ expansion goals.

Open wallets: $$$ per-visitor per-night grew fast until 2009. Comparisons to other countries is not valid due to short-term stays bringing down average.

Economics: looking much better, especially compared to Europe.

International!!!!: Canada is a big part of the general story of international (growing) importance. 2009 perhaps an anomaly to long-term trend. Domestic industry may be mature from an industry life-stage perspective???
