Dickinson is seeing an increase in people coming to town

Things are looking up in Dickinson, ND as more people are coming to town.

Dickinson has 21 hotels and motels in city limits, and the city has seen an increase in revenue in its Occupancy and Hospitality tax.

According to Terri Thiel, Executive Director at Dickinson Convention & Visitors Bureau, the Occupancy Tax is up 3 percent as of YTD October 2018 compared to last year, and the Hospitality Tax is up 9 percent 

The occupancy rates as of YTD October 2018 were up 14 percent from 2017, and the rates in November alone, were up more than 50 percent from the same time last year.

“So is it the energy development. . . is it some other improvements that are from construction projects. . .  we don’t really know,-but both those factors for the two taxes together are indicating a healthier economy for Dickinson,” said Thiel.

Thiel said the revenue from the city’s Occupancy Tax goes towards funding the visitor and convention bureau’s operations, and the Hospitality Tax goes towards capital construction projects for visitor attraction.
