Overseas Tourism is Big Business for the USA

Overseas visitors stay longer and spend more money in the Capital Region than visitors from the USA. In 2017, 2.59 million overseas travelers visited the Capital Region, stayed an average of 9.6 nights, and spent nearly $5.4 billion on hotels, meals, shopping, attractions, and other goods and services across Washington, DC, Maryland, and Virginia. These overseas visitors helped generate nearly 37,500 jobs throughout the Capital Region.

Making CRUSA Work for You

In addition to our Sales & Marketing Opportunities, there are numerous ways for destinations and attractions in the Capital Region to increase your reach with CRUSA’s international audiences:

Affiliate and Allied Memberships

CRUSA's new Allied and Affiliate Memberships bundle our most popular programs and opportunities. The Allied Membership includes a seat on CRUSA's new advisory committee giving partners a chance to share input with CRUSA's board.
