Join us for an educational webinar, Determining the Economic Impact of Festivals and Events. Most destinations and attractions host or sponsor festivals and events, but few are able to quantify the value of these events on the local economy.  An economic impact analysis can provide valuable data to prove return on investment to elected officials, local stakeholders, and the C Suite.  But how do you get started?  This session will cover three ways that your destination can calculate the economic impact of festivals and events, and will provide specific steps on how to do them. (1 hour in length)
