Over the summer, Everett-based events attracted more than 20,000 people. One of the events, co-hosted by Experience Everett, was the inaugural Everett Craft Beer Festival, which brought more than 3,400 people to the downtown area. Several nearby restaurants reported a jump in business ranging from 50 to 120 percent that day.
The tourism industry employs nearly 15,000 people in the county.
