Event Impact Calculator: Sports Module Task Force

Meet the individuals who make the task force that is guiding DMAI and Tourism Economics in developing and testing the Sports Module to the Event Impact Calculator to understand the economic impact of sporting events in our destinations.


Announcing the Sports Module

The Sports Module of the Event Impact Calculator is due to be introduced to the DMO community at DMAI's 99th Annual Convention in July of this year.

As the Sports Module undergoes development and release, DMAI is grateful to involve a special task force of DMOs with a vested interest in this particular market to not only guide our progress, but also rigorously test the module for accuracy and ease of use.

Gathering monthly, this group of resprentatives is critical in surfacing relevant topics and user concerns that DMAI and Tourism Economics continue to explore in order to provide a robust and practical tool for DMOs.
