Jan 28, 2013 (The Charlotte Observer - McClatchy-Tribune Information Services via COMTEX) --
Charlotte city leaders have announced that last year's Democratic National Convention produced an economic impact of $163.6 million, with $91 million in direct spending.
Officials hired a private firm to compile the numbers, and the results are scheduled to be made public during an afternoon news conference.
Estimates before the event were that 35,000 visitors would come to Charlotte, and that it would provide a $100 million to $200 million boost to the local economy.
