Sports Commission at Alabama Beach Sets New Record for 2010

Despite the summer events of 2010, the Alabama Gulf Coast Sports Commission (AGCSC) exceeded 2009’s previous all-time highs to establish several new records, including tourism money brought into the local economy. In 2010, the commission recruited and/or serviced 68 events – 17 more events than 2009, and generated 38,142 room nights for the island – a 64 percent increase over 23,155 room nights in 2009. Ultimately, these events resulted in a $12.8 million tourism impact, which is a $5 million increase over the previous year.
