Duration: 1 hour

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? In this webinar, the IMPLAN Education Services team will explore this question.

Education Services Specialist Michael Nealy and Education Services Manager Angela Slovachek discuss the exciting insights you can gain when you use IMPLAN to study the recreation spending of locals and non-local visitors. They’ll 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.
