Summer Classic Economic Impact
To figure the economic impact of your show on the surrounding area, the following formula can be used.
(Actual number of horses X 2.5 people per horse = total people) X (Actual show days + 1 move in/out days X $150 per diem = total $) = $directly into city.
Then multiply $ directly into city by 4 (estimated number of times each tourist dollar turns over in the economy) = total economic impact.
Well, here is how I did the economic impact for Summer Classic in Central Point:
(575 X 2.5 = 1437.5) X (6+1 X $150 = $1050) = $1,509,375
$1,509,375 X 4 = $6,037,500
The total economic impact of the Summer Classic is estimated at $6,037,500.
