Sport Tourism: State of the Industry Report (2019)
To quantify the economic significance of the sports tourism sector in the U.S., Tourism Economics prepared a comprehensive model using multiple primary and secondary data sources to quantify the economic impacts arising from sports-related travel spending.
Impact modeling is based on an IMPLAN Input-Output (I-O) model for the U.S. The results of this study show the scope of the sports tourism sector in terms of direct sports-related travel spending, as well as total economic impacts, including employment, household income, and tax impacts in the broader economy.
This report was prepared by Tourism Economics for IAEH member Sports Events and Tourism Association (Sports ETA – USA).
