Vote YES on the Visit California Marketing Renewal
Visit California is working. But we need your help to ensure that California is able to continue marketing its unique brand to potential visitors throughout the world.
Visit California is an industry led partnership with the state that requires a renewal every six years. The last renewal passed with 91% support, an indication of how valuable Visit California is to the industry. Without your YES Vote, Visit California will cease to exist and the marketing efforts that have been so successful will end.
Visit California uses its resources very efficiently - 92% of its budget goes to brand marketing and reserve.Visit California's low overhead contributes to its incredible 231:1 return on investment. And as a result of legislation passed in 2006, the rental car industry contributes 81% of the total Visit California budget.
Over the last 15 years, Visit California has become one of the nation's premier state marketing agencies - promoting California travel and tourism. In 2011, tourism in California generated a record of $102.3 billion in direct travel-related spending, which in turn produced $6.3 billion in state and local tax revenues, and directly supported 893,000 California jobs.
This March, please vote YES on the renewal to keep California travel and tourism strong.
