During the months and years leading up to the 2012 Republican National Convention, the Tampa Bay Host Committee anticipated that significant dollars would be infused in the local Tampa Bay community. After the Convention ended, the Host Committee retained econometric experts and commissioned a comprehensive economic impact study. The study was conducted using the IMPLAN model and was performed by Florida-based economists.
