4 Reasons President Trump Will Be Good for Business

By Matt Swenson, January 19, 2017

Trump favors travel. One of the new president’s top priorities is improving the country’s travel infrastructure, much to Dominguez’s delight. “Our roads and airports are antiquated,” he laments. But the question remains whether the high price tag of keeping up with increased travel demands can overcome congressional gridlock. “I don’t know if he can put together a multitrillion-dollar infrastructure plan, but if he does, that clearly benefits all of us,” says Paul Van Deventer, president and CEO of MPI and co-chair of the Meetings Mean Business Coalition.

Trump cares a lot about trade. That is an understatement. “He is borderline obsessed with trade,” says Massari. How that fits into meetings and events is that tourism is one of the country’s biggest exports. If Trump is serious about gaining leverage over trade partners like China, he will look to boost tourism dollars as part of a bigger picture.
