The Charlotte Regional Visitors Authority/Visit Charlotte wants to celebrate the outstanding performance of hospitality partners working to directly impact the Charlotte economy. Since 2007, we have hosted the Partners in Tourism Awards to recognize a year full of major achievements in the local tourism industry. Join us for a morning of high-energy celebration and excitement! Take a peek into last year's event here.
Hyong Yi is the author of 100 Love Notes, which started out as a tribute to his late wife Catherine, became a viral sensation, and is now a book. He has spent his career working as a public servant, currently for the City of Charlotte. He earned degrees in political science and public administration. He loves his community, his family, and his children.
The numbers are in, and they are impressive. The meetings and hospitality industry generates a critical $6.5 billion in direct visitor spending and employs more than 124,000 hospitality workers in the Charlotte region, saving each Mecklenburg County resident an average of $349 in taxes each year.
