About Visit Savannah
Visit Savannah, the largest business unit of the Savannah Area Chamber of Commerce, is the official destination marketing organization for the Greater Savannah area. We work to provide the resources, platforms and opportunities for individual local businesses to market their services and products to a variety of travel audiences, including leisure tourists, convention planners and meeting/trade show attendees.
Visit Savannah works closely with Chamber member businesses to ensure the continued growth and success of our economy. Many of these businesses take an active role in the development of the city through our cooperative sales and marketing projects, councils, task forces and committees.
Through our collaborative efforts, in 2022 Savannah played host to an estimated 9.7 million overnight person-trips and more than $4.4 billion in total visitor spending. Savannah has also enjoyed increased air service (27.5% increase in air arrivals versus 2021) and expanded tourism offerings in the last several years. The city's increased lodging demand (up 9.2% for hotels and 3.3% for short-term rentals over 2021) generated $44.5 million in bed tax collections in 2022 (up 21.6% over 2021). Savannah's hospitality-related jobs grew 9.6% and added approximately 2,300 jobs in 2022*, employing more than 27,000 people in the Savannah area. In addition to jobs, taxes generated by the visitor economy save each Savannah household at least $1,600 a year**. These statistics show that Savannah's tourism economy benefits residents and visitors alike.
