The 2018 tournament had a significant impact on the local community, accounting for more than 14,860 room nights at local hotels and filling area restaurants and shops, resulting in more than $10 million in economic impact.
Ben Huffman, WCCVB sports enterprises director, expects this year’s event to be similarly impactful.
“Hosting the Club Championships here in 2018 was truly an incredible experience, and we’re beyond thrilled to welcome the World Ultimate community back to town this summer,” Huffman said. “These championships have been played all around the world — from Italy to Prague to Australia to Scotland — so it says so much about our community that we’ve been invited to host them not once, but twice, and in such a short period of time.”
Tourism is the leading industry in Warren County, as more than 12 million visitors drive an economic impact of $1.3 billion and support more than 12,000 tourism-related jobs in the county in a typical year.
