Orlando accepted 57 million people in 2012, thus setting a third consecutive year high. The breakdown is as follows: 52.9 million United States visitors and an estimated 4.1 million international travelers. This is a 3.3% increase compared to 2011. These numbers were higher than anticipated for 2012, according to Visit Orlando.

This announcement was made at this year’s International Pow Wow, a tourism-based annual tradeshow and convention, often used for large announcements by those in the travel industry. The event took place in Last Vegas and is said to return to Orlando in 2015.
