Louisiana Governor John Bel Edwards and WWE have announced WrestleMania 34 generated $175 million “in economic impact for the greater New Orleans region.”
The company sent out a press release claiming the $175 million is “direct, indirect and induced impact derived from spending by visitors to New Orleans for WrestleMania 34.” This includes $22 million spent on hotels/accommodations within New Orleans and $9.9 million spent at area restaurants.
“Yet again, WWE delivered on its promise to offer a spectacular event in New Orleans and a boost to the local economy,” said Bel Edwards. “I would like to thank the WWE fans from around the world that descended on New Orleans for WrestleMania Week. We hope they enjoyed their visit, and more importantly, we hope to bring WrestleMania back to New Orleans in the future.”
The information was said to have been gathered by Enigma Research Corporation — an international consulting firm which specializes in measuring the economic impact of special events.
