The West Michigan Sports Commission is bringing another $2.2 million in economic impact to the region.
One week after the 2017 Meijer State Games of America brought an estimated $10 million into West Michigan, the WMSC is hosting the 2017 International Softball Congress Men’s World Tournament and 2017 PDGA Professional Masters Disc Golf World Championship this week. Both events run Aug. 12-19 and will bring 1,000 athletes from 17 countries who will book an estimated 3,000 hotel rooms through the week.
