Crunch this: $10.3 million into Denver
The Democratic National Convention isn’t the only large group to infuse cash into the Colorado economy by meeting in Denver this summer.
The American Statistical Association’s 2008 Joint Statistical Meetings kicked off Sunday at the Colorado Convention Center and will go through Thursday. The group’s 5,200 numbers crunchers are expected to pump $10.3 million into the Denver economy, according to the Denver Metro Convention & Visitors Bureau.
DNC organizers expect a minimum of $160 million to flow into the metro area during the four-day Democratic convention, Aug. 25-28.
But as the statisticians would probably tell you, they’re bringing in at least one-sixteenth of that amount, which is nothing to sneeze at.
