Indiana's corporate community is already lining up behind another Indianapolis Super Bowl bid. Super Bowl 2012 Host Committee Chairman Mark Miles says more than 130 donors for February's title game have been approached about the potential for another run to land the National Football League contest and the economic benefits that go with it. In a Studio(i) interview, Miles talks about the game's impact and the promise of a planned pursuit of the 2018 Super Bowl.
Miles says organizers sat with 133 donors after the game to gauge their interest in doing it all again.
An independent study shows the economic impact from this year's Super Bowl in Indianapolis is more than $150 million. Miles says that is a conservative estimate.
Most of that is direct spending from the 116,000 thousand visitors from outside a 50 mile radius who descended on the city.
He says Adding in several other factors and the impact could top $370 million.
The full effect probably still can't be assessed. The city still has the possibility of landing more convention business from organizations who attended Super Bowl activities.
