Vision & Timing! Five Years Ago… SDTMD and Con. Vis were responsible for convincing the San Diego Brewers Guild to move SD Beer Week from its planned timeframe in August 2009 (already a peak tourist time) to early November (an Off-Peak tourism period) when it could benefit the entire local tourism and hospitality industry.
Nov. 2009 – Nov. 2012 • • 2009 – TMD invested $22, 320 in first-time event: San Diego Beer Week. Due to the spread-out nature of the event, lack of standardized reporting procedures, and the short lead time (2 months) between TMD investment funding and SDBW 2009, no ROI report was possible. 300+ events were held during our first SDBW. 2010 – TMD invested $50, 000 in second year event: 477 posted events in 10 days. Using the TMD standard ADR of $125. 25, this yielded a total of $179, 734. 00 in incremental hotel revenue for TMD area properties. Using the TMD investment of $50, 000, the ROI was approximately 3. 59: 1 2011 – TMD invested $74, 900 in third-year event: 524 posted events in 10 days. Using the TMD standard ADR of $129. 93, this yielded a total of $469, 307 in additional hotel revenue during the Beer Week period. Using the TMD investment of $74, 999. 00 the ROI was approximately 6. 26: 1. 2012 -TMD invested $74, 900 in fourth year event: 535 posted events in 10 Days Using TMD standard ADR $132. 89, this yielded a total $789, 794 in hotel revenue. The ROI is approximately 11. 56: 1
