Go International

Are You Ready to Welcome the International Market?

Go International
January 27 – 28, 2020
Albuquerque, New Mexico

 

Overseas Travelers to Indian Country

In 2018, nearly five percent of the 40 million overseas visitors to the United States reported visiting an American Indian community (VAIC).

These VAIC travelers are known to stay longer in the U.S. than the average overseas traveler, visit more destinations and spend more money.

Native American visitor destinations and experiences not incorporating overseas marketing in their business plans risk missing out on a lucrative customer segment.
