Fredericton tourism revenues remain below pre-pandemic levels, despite increase in 2021


Fredericton's tourism sector had a rebound year in 2021, but revenues were still below pre-pandemic levels.

In a release, the city says the industry saw $215 million in visitor spending last year.

That's an increase of 50% over 2020, but was 41% below spending levels in 2019.

424,000 hotel nights were sold last year, which was the highest in New Brunswick and an increase of 40% over the year before, but remained 41% below 2019 bookings.

Stacey Russell, Manager of Fredericton Events and Tourism, says all indicators for 2022 point to a promising tourism year for the city.
