International Visitors on the Rise for White Party Week
This year is time to brush up on your foreign languages as we continue to see record numbers of international orders on the rise, not only for the White Party Week fundraiser in Miami, but as a nation on the whole.
In a recent report from NBC News Travel, more people from around the world are holding court with Disney World princesses and pondering the Grand Canyon’s depths this year, all the while boosting the U.S. economy, according to a White House report released last month that found international tourism to the United States is growing.
Currently, orders for White Party Week are on the rise and tickets have been sold to visitors traveling from Australia, Brazil, Canada, France, Germany, Ireland, Mexico, Poland, Switzerland, United Kingdom, Venezuela, Spain, Colombia, Greece, Singapore and Italy to experience the world’s sexiest HIV/AIDS dance fundraiser.
The number of international visitors to the United States rose 10 percent in the first three months of 2012 from the same period in 2011, the report found, which estimated that demand for tourist visas would grow almost 19 percent this year from last.
“The demand in travel to the United States, whether it’s for leisure or shopping, has always been there. What hasn’t been there in recent years was a process that made the United States attractive,” said Geoff Freeman, chief operating officer at U.S. Travel Association, which represents the travel industry.
