By the Numbers: FY14 Year in Review

As the cornerstone of San Diego’s third largest industry – tourism and hospitality – the San Diego Convention Center is responsible for bringing hundreds of thousands of out-of-town guests to our city each year. 

From the money they spend on travel and lodging, to the bills they pick up at dinner, convention attendees generate millions in tax revenues for the City of San Diego, helping to pay for basic city services, including:

  • police and fire protection
  • street, park and beach maintenance
  • and libraries and museums

These funds help reduce the tax burden on the local taxpayers.

In Fiscal Year 2014, the San Diego Convention Center generated $1.33 billion in economic impact to the region thanks to the 153 events held in the building and the more than 780,000 attendees associated with those events.
