Overall, employment in hospitality & tourism-related occupations is projected to grow faster than the average for all occupations. Greater demand for dining variety, coupled with population and income growth, will result in the food service industry growing over 20 percent between 2020 and 2030, adding 2.3 million jobs.

The travel industry segment will continue to grow, although online travel resources will hamper growth in employment for occupations such as travel agents, lodging managers, and meeting and event planners.
