Event Impact Calculator

The Event Impact Calculator (EIC) is a tool you can use to generate a quantification of the direct, indirect and induced impact of an event held within Kansas. With the availability of the required data entry, this easy -to- use tool can assist you in assessing the economic impact of any type event (i.e. festival, sporting event, convention/meeting, etc.). The EIC is designed to supplement your existing processes by providing sound benefit estimates and a quick initial estimate of net return. Benefits are measured in terms of output/spending, job creation, corresponding payroll, and tax receipts (state & local). Calculating these benefits provides the wherewithal to quickly evaluate economic impact and ROI (return on investment) for sponsorship requests. The EIC uses data from the 2013 Tourism Satellite Account Impact Study to calculate results.
