Economic Impact Report

Boston's Convention Centers are Driving Regional Economic Activity

The Commonwealth of Massachusetts is realizing a significant return on its investment.
2005 was the first full year of operations for the BCEC. The convention and event activity generated by the facility, together with the Hynes Convention Center, demonstrate that Boston is competing with major convention cities across the country, and that the city is a premier convention destination. With this success, the residents and businesses in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts are experiencing a return on their investment in the form of substantial economic activity and tax revenues.
