59,228 hotel room nights & other numbers

2 JANUARY 2015

If you're curious about how SDCC stacks up in terms of size and revenue compared to other convention center events, this article spells it out. Mostly there are a lot of medical conferences, a few tech and realtor events, and then us, "the top economic generator."

Our monetary might includes:

  • $133.9 million in regional impact
  • $80.4 million in direct attendee spending
  • $2.8 million in tax revenues
  • 59,228 hotel room nights

They mentioned that the delayed expansion isn't affecting anything this year; it's more that future events "may need additional space that isn't guaranteed yet." You don't say.
