It's a troubled world, but people still want to go see it. That's one conclusion to be reached after the UN's World Tourism Organization reported this week that the number of international tourists reached nearly 1.14 billion in 2014, 51 million more than in 2013 and an increase of 4.7 percent. The Americas led the way with growth of more than 7 percent, but Europe (see graph) still leads in total tourism by a long shot.

"Why do I read Site Selection?"
"When searching for our site in the United States I found Site Selection Magazine helpful in narrowing down the areas of the country most suited for our type of operation. When you combine the articles and research features across many editions of the publication, it is indeed an excellent location tool as you canvass the land. I highly recommend Site Selection."
