The Power of Travel

Travel Works in ABQ

Tourism is one of the nation's leading industries. And it makes an impact here in Albuquerque too: 6.2 million visitors come to Albuquerque each year, generating $69 million in local taxes.* 

As one of the largest private industries in the city of Albuquerque and the state of New Mexico, travel and tourism means visitors spend money at shops, restaurants, attractions, hotels, meeting facilities and countless other businesses. That's millions of dollars in outside money stimulating the Duke City's economy each year.
