Promoting Tourism

Tourism is vital to Scottsdale's economic growth and our attractions bring in millions of visitors, generate thousands of jobs, and create billions of dollars in annual economic impact.

Mayor Jim Lane has shepherded in a new era of Scottsdale tourism efforts, overseeing the rebranding of the Scottsdale Convention and Visitors Bureau to Experience Scottsdale. Due to his efforts and many others, Scottsdale is no longer just a place to golf and escape the winter gloom – Scottsdale is a global destination with unrivaled attractions.

Every year, events like the Arabian Horse Show, Barrett-Jackson, Bentley Scottsdale Polo Championships, Cactus League Spring Training and the Waste Management Phoenix Open, shatter attendance records and have established Scottsdale's brand as "the place to be and be seen."

As your Councilman, I will continue efforts to promote economic vitality that is compatible with Scottsdale's valuable brand.
