Seminar to Study States' Outdoor Rec Impact

Wed Nov 27, 2019
Author: RVIA Staff

157486421873189.jpgEarlier this year, the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) 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.

The RVIA is hosting a webinar on Thursday, Dec. 5 at 2 p.m. ET, as BEA officials walk through the results of the study and what they mean for the RV industry. Members of the RV Industry Association staff will also 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 you can provide feedback to BEA.

To register for the webinar, click here. A link to the webinar will be emailed directly to on participants the day of the webinar. Registration for this seminar closes at 1 p.m. on December 5.

The webinar is open to members and non-members. You will need to have an RVIA account to access this information. If you do not already have an account, click here for instructions on how to create an account.
