Due to the 2002 Winter Olympics, Salt Lake City is garnering attention as a prime destination spot for both travelers and new residents. After significant hotel expansions over the last several years, the city's occupancy rates have equalized and begun to show slight improvement over the high vacancy rights in recent history. Visitor arrivals have shown sustained growth, and the state has been successful in attracting a higher quality of tourism with visitor spending increasing as well. With tourism now accounting for one in nine of the state's jobs, a healthy economy will depend on continued efforts to bring in new tourists and persuade Olympic visitors to return.
