Eastern States Exposition Study Cites REMI

The Eastern States Exposition released today the results of a study conducted by REMI on the economic impact of its annual multi-state fair and its associated year-round events. The overall impact of the events comes out to $479 million per year, with an annual gross regional impact of $299 million, and accounts for 3,000 jobs in the surrounding county alone. The Exposition’s main event, informally known as the Big E, is a 17-day fair which serves as the state fair for all six New England states and is the largest agricultural exposition on the eastern seaboard as well as being the sixth-largest fair in the nation.
