Economic Impact

Meetings mean business and boost our Connecticut Economy.

The Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau utilizes the Destination International’s Event Impact Calculator (EIC), established as an industry standard and developed by Tourism Economics, an Oxford Economics Company. The calculator measures the direct impacts of events on businesses, employment, income and taxes.

The Connecticut Convention & Sports Bureau is measured by the number of Lead (or referred) hotel room nights to our hotels & venues. Our reporting measure of success is the number of definite room nights booked and how each event impacts the Connecticut economy.

2019/20 Lead Room Nights referred: 327,031
2019/20 Definite Room Nights booked: 65,051

2019/20 Total Business Revenue: $56,694,734
2019/20 Total CT Sales Tax Generated: $3,587,799
2019/20 Jobs Supported in Hospitality: 17,333
