ROCK HILL, SC (WBTV) - Mecklenburg County officials estimate an economic impact of up to $200 million from the Democratic National Convention.
But counties surrounding Mecklenburg are also hoping to get their own boost from visitors and delegates to the DNC. Sonja Burris with York County's Convention and Visitors Bureau says their county has contracted 16 hotels to serve DNC guests. "It's great that we're in such close proximity to take the overflow from Charlotte and we're looking forward to the guests," said Burris.
While Burris doesn't yet know the economic impact the extra company will have on hotels, restaurants and other businesses in York County, Cabarrus County has already readied an estimate.
17 hotels on Bruton Smith Boulevard are packed with delegate reservations. Officials there say they could expect more than $6 million from the added revenue.
While Charlotte and businesses inside the 485 loop may see the bulk of the DNC dollars, it's clear other counties may profit too.
