The boost in economic impact is attributed to heavy convention business held in the facility, which brought 3,000 guests to the Niagara Falls area as well as more than 4,000 room nights to local hotels. This is the highest month of July on record for the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls since opening in 2004. The center is managed by Global Spectrum.
“Based on industry standards, we estimate that these five conferences have contributed a tremendous $2.275 million of economic impact to Niagara Falls,” said Ryan Coate, general manager, Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls. “Global Spectrum’s employees have the great ability to not only generate new business, but maintain existing clients and consistently satisfy our convention guests. This is what makes the Conference & Event Center Niagara Falls an industry leader in downtown Niagara Falls and the region.”
The conferences that helped to contribute to these numbers are as follows:
- 19th Annual Ronald McNair Research Conference – 639 room nights.
- American Legion – New York Regional Convention – 2,027 room nights.
- American Council for an Energy-Efficient Economy Conference – 444 room nights.
- National Association Of Scientific Materials Managers Conference – 821 room nights.
- Uniform Data System for Medical Rehabilitation Annual Meeting – 300 room nights.
Conferences booked for the fall season at the Conference & Event Center include the New York State Library Association, the New York State Builders Association and the Automobile Recyclers Association of New York.
