The Cincinnati USA Convention & Visitors Bureau, Regional Tourism Network and meetNKY have planned a week’s worth of showcase events that celebrate our destination and the importance of our region-wide hospitality industry. You’ve seen the headlines: 26 million annual visitors spending more than $5 billion a year while they’re here. The New York Times just named us No. 8 on its list of “52 Places to Go in 2018” and Lonely Planet listed us at No. 5 on its “Best U.S. Destinations to Visit in 2018.” Positive momentum like we’ve never seen, and we’re ready to celebrate in style. Join us as we tell Cincinnati's tourism story: to our neighbors, to our community leaders, to the world. These events are part of the 35 th annual National Travel and Tourism Week, which unites communities across the country to celebrate what travel means to American jobs, economic growth and personal well-being.
