Last year the Atlantic City air show was ranked as one of the largest air shows in the nation. The show brought in a whopping 42.5 million into the area. This year studies show that the show should bring in more than it did last year. The show was moved from August to June this year, let's see how that goes.
More people than ever before attended the Atlantic City Airshow in 2012, pumping $42.5 million into the regional economy.
Organizers said those numbers are encouraging as the airshow prepares to break from tradition with a 2013 show that will not feature a major jet team and will be held for the first time in June rather than August.
Following the 2012 show — the first to be held on a Friday rather than a traditional midweek date — Richard Perniciaro, director of Atlantic Cape Community College’s Center for Regional and Business Research, conducted an analysis of the event’s impact.
