The Detroit News reports that according to the just-completed study by a St. Louis research firm for the Metro Detroit Convention and Visitors Bureau, hosting Super Bowl XL provided a $273.9-million economic boost to the Detroit area. While that number is on the lower side, it was a huge boost for the normally empty February for Detroit. The biggest beneficiaries of Super Bowl spending were the region's hotels, the casinos and other entertainment spots, and food and drink providers. who nabbed 54% of the $170 million in direct spending by out-of-town visitors.
