Start Your Career in Louisville's Tourism Industry
Before the pandemic, Bourbon City had been experiencing tremendous growth in tourism infrastructure and tourism was the third largest industry in Louisville, supporting the hosting of a record 19 million visitors in 2019*. This peak of visitation generated an estimated economic impact of $3.5 billion.
The industry is poised to make a strong comeback - currently supporting 63,000 local tourism jobs and growing. 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 robust local restaurant 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 city's soul and needs you.
