The economic impact of Wrestlemania 29
Apr 1, 2013 - by Steve Gerweck
NorthJersey.com has an article regarding the economy that WrestleMania
29 will leave in the New York and New Jersey areas as thousands upon
thousands of fans from around the world descent into the cities for the
showcase of the immortals. WrestleMania is estimated to give the New York
City and North Jersey economies a lift of $100 million or more from
spending on hotels, meals, rental cars and shopping, officials have said.
The article states that around 36 hotels within seven miles of the MetLife
Stadium are all sold out for the weekend. “For us it’s all about heads in
beds,” said James Kirkos, head of the Meadowlands Chamber of Commerce.
