Webinar to Discuss Economic Impact of Rec

The RV Industry Association will host a webinar at 2 p.m. ET on Thursday, Dec. 5, as BEA officials walk through the results of a recent study from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA), and what it means for the RV industry.

Earlier this year, the Bureau of Economic Analysis released the first-ever study on the economic impact of outdoor recreation in each state and the District of Columbia. The study reinforces what the outdoor recreation industry has long believed: outdoor recreation is a powerful driver of national and local economies and it is growing faster than the U.S. economy as a whole.

RVIA staff also will explain how this new data can support industry efforts in the states, including the initiative establish Offices of Outdoor Recreation in states across the country.

The newly released state numbers are “prototypes,” meaning BEA is looking for feedback on the numbers. The feedback will be used to help finalize data sources and methodology before the numbers are finalized next year. This webinar will also detail how people can provide feedback to BEA.
