Tourism turnaround for D.C.?

By Washington Post editors

D.C. tourism officials are expecting visitation to the city to remain relatively flat during 2011, though convention business is supposed to improve compared to previous years, The Washington Business Journal reports.

"It's about putting 2009 and 2010 behind us," said Destination DC CEO Elliot Ferguson at the organization's annual marketing outlook Thursday morning. "2011 is going to be a fantastic year for us."

In 2011, the city is expecting a boost from such conventions as the Teach for America event in February, the Fancy Foods trade show in July and the American College of Surgeons in October. The Fancy Foods show will remain in D.C. for 2012 as well.
