Organizers are calling the economic impact of this summer's World Choir Games, "staggering."

The convention and visitor's bureau estimates the global and national publicity value at more than $49 million. Total attendance at events is estimated at around 208,000 people.

A budget breakdown sent out by the Cincinnati USA bureau reports organizers broke even on the event, bringing in nearly $10 million in revenue but expending the same amount.
