Analyzing the Economic Impact of Recreation Spending


From rails-to-trails and boating to music festivals and other events, tourism and recreation play a vital role in any economy. But how do you quantify their impact? Join the IMPLAN Education Services team on June 19th at 1PM, EST, where we will discuss the exciting insights you can gain when you use IMPLAN to study the recreation spending of locals and non-local visitors. In this presentation we will guide you through an economic impact analysis of Torrence Creek Greenway in Mecklenburg County, NC and take a look at the impact of a proposed expansion to the greenway, sharing helpful tips and tricks you can apply to your own project.
