Oneida County Tourism hoping to beat pre-COVID revenue levels

In 2019, tourism in Oneida County brought in an estimated $ 1.6 billion in revenue, and Kelly Blazosky, the president of Oneida County Tourism, is hopeful that this year it will bring in even more.

“It’s a significant industry for Oneida County, as well as the general Central New York region,” Blazosky said.

She was happy to share some metrics that bode well for the industry, one of them being that this year’s Cycle the Erie Canal Bike Tour, which will make a stop in Rome in July, has already sold all of its tickets in just a few weeks time. That event will host 700 participants.

“It’s exciting to see those kinds of things happening,” Blazosky said. “For it to sell out early is a good indicator that things are on the right track.”
