Southern Hospitality at Work

Start your career in Louisville's Tourism industry.

Prior to the pandemic, the Bourbon city had been experiencing tremendous growth in tourism infrastructure. Tourism was the third largest industry in Louisville supporting 60,500 local tourism-related jobs. These jobs helped host a record 19 million visitors in 2019*. This peak of visitation generated an estimated economic impact of $3.5 billion.

Now, the industry is poised to make a strong comeback and Louisville’s assets help set it apart from the competition. These include a newly expanded downtown Kentucky International Convention Center, over 21,000 hotel rooms and growing, and nearly a dozen Urban Bourbon experiences driving the city’s authentic culture with other iconic attractions and a strong local restaurants culture.

As visitation and tourism demand continues to rise, now is the time to start or relaunch a career. The hospitality and tourism industry is the soul of the city and it needs you.
