Kansas Recreation & Parks Convention Boosts Local Economy
Wednesday, February 27, 2019
Hutchinson had a significant increase in visitors earlier this month when the KS Recreation & Parks Association hosted their Annual Convention at the Atrium Hotel & Conference Center. Over 430 attendees and 85 vendors spent February 5-7 meeting, learning and exploring our community. Visit Hutch worked with local restaurants, venues and vendors to generate an Economic Impact report of the conference.
Using a third-party calculator through Tourism Economics, Destination Marketing Association International and the KS Department of Wildlife Parks & Tourism, it has been determined that Hutchinson saw a direct economic impact of over $270,000 during the two- and half-day convention.
