Economic impact analysis: How to utilize data to impact decision making

Hospitality and leisure businesses have great potential to attract new spending into regional economies. Many policymakers and regional decision makers recognize this important role of the sector and seek reliable information on growth and economic impacts to consider as part of their planning processes.

If this is your situation

  • You seek approval and support for a plan to construct a casino-gaming facility that will draw visitors from a broad region.
  • Your area's policymakers and other decision makers are not aware of your industry's rapid growth and economic contributions to local communities.
  • You seek regulatory approval to serve local ports with a new type of cruise vessel.
  • You need to collaborate with local planners to design a vacation ownership resort that supports local tax revenues and a reasonable rate of return.
