Governor Andrew Cuomo announced Wednesday that he will hold a state tourism summit with industry leaders and business owners on May 8 to discuss ways to keep the industry growing.

The summit will consider ideas for increasing jobs and revenue from tourism.

A record 202 million visitors from around the world came to New York in 2011, which the state said created 694,000 jobs and brought $53.9 billion in revenue.
