Tomorrowworld Increases Economic Impact on Georgia By $9 Million in 2014

The first edition of Tomorrowworld welcomed 140,000 people from 75 different countries (and all fifty United States) to Chattahoochee Hills, Georgia.

Following Tomorrowworld 2013, a three-day electronic dance music festival patterned after Belgium's Tomorrowland, independent research firm Beacon Economics released a study commissioned by event organizers to measure the economic impact of the event. According to Beacon, the inaugural Tomorrowworld festival brought $85.1 million into the Georgia economy.

With the bar set so high from Tomorrowworld's successful first chapter, many predicted the 2014 edition would greatly exceed expectations. And they were not wrong.

A new impact study released 2 June 2015 says Tomorrowworld 2014 pumped $94 million into Georgia's economy. That represents a $9 million increase from 2013.

The study, conducted by independent research firm ICF International and commissioned by Tomorrowworld, states that the electronic dance music festival also generated $4.7 million in state and local taxes.

Local businesses such as Larry's Beverage Outlet and the Wal-Mart Supercenter, both located near Tomorrowworld in Union City, experienced sales rivaling Black Friday numbers in 2014. Hot items at Wal-Mart for Tomorrowworld include tents, pillows, wheeled carts, baby wipes, glow sticks, fresh fruit and of course, alcohol.
